A Foodie's Meat List

[Updated]

In college, studying biology, I was taught that the vast majority of the earth’s population relies on a mere dozen species of plants for food. Of the thousands that we can eat, we only do eat a handful. That is something that needs to change for a whole lot of reasons.

The same is basically true for animal species. Those of us who eat meat tend to rely on about three animals 90% of the time or more. I sat down with some friends the other night trying to come up with a comprehensive list of all the meats that are eaten. Regardless of how gross certain aspects of eating meat can be, it is an experience. Here are 100 “types” of meat that are eaten somewhere in the world. How many have you tried?
