Fried or grilled and seasoned alligator (and the meat comes from the tail)
makes an outstanding appetizer, and is usually found in better Cajun
Now, for the typical Medieval European, encountering a gator or croc
(crickey, she's a beauty!) is probably the last thing he or she needs to
worry about, but I cannot help but wonder if specimens of large lizards were
regularly imported from the Nile region, especially during the Renaissance
when trade routes were becoming well established. The dragon lives!
A snake encounter, on the other hand, would be very possible for those
living on the Continent or in England. And if a good cook encountered a
large enough snake, snake may very well have found his way into the stew
Could make some interesting feast menu possibilities...
And as I look at my pet Nile Monitor, she's giving me that very stern "don't
you even think about it!" look as she recoils her tail
