We learn from the Miami Herald that:
Brian Wood, operator of All American Gators in Hallandale Beach — a reptile processor — said he would pay $5 per foot for a whole snake. He showed off a pair of jumbo snakeskin trousers valued at $900 and touted the flavor of snake meat, although tests on samples from the Everglades show it’s high in mercury.
“The meat is very excellent,’’ Wood said. “It’s like chicken, but it does taste like snake.’’
