Eels Bibliography Biographical Sketches 1. Introduction Many undomesticat, exotic and wild animals are hunt, harvest, and captur by fishing. For those who engage in hunting and/or fishing for pleasure or for trophies, these animals make up only a modest protein or food supply. However, these animals can make up a significant protein supply for indigenous people or aborigines who have little or no access to domesticat animals. The line between these animals and those of the same specie that are farm in captivity is sometimes gray since with proper handling and an adequate fe supply, most of these animals could be farm. This section will concentrate on these animals (with the exclusion of fish) that in general, are not farm.

2 AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES - Vol. I - Undomesticat Food Animals Hunt and Us For Food - Herbert W. Ockerman and The large variety of animals consum in Africa (south of the Sahara), can be found in Tables 1, 2, 3 and 4 (includes chemical composition), and those popular in aborigine diets in Australia can be found in Table 5 (including lipid content). Table 6 gives a more worldwide perspective of the undomesticat animals us for food in various parts of the world, along with chemical composition, mineral composition, and select vitamin content. Table 7 tabulates chemical composition and mineral content of cook tissue from exotic animals utiliz in various locations around the globe. Species available Grasscutter (Thryonomys swinderianus) Grey Duiker (Sylvicapra grimmia) Bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) Royal Antelope (Neotragus pygmaeus) Black Duiker (Cephalophus niger) Green Monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) Bay Duiker (Cephalophus dorsalis) R River-hog (Bush-pig) (Potamochoerus porcus) Brush-tail Porcupine (Atherurus africanus) Pouch Rat (Giant Rat) (Cricetomys gambianus) Monitor lizards (Varanus spp.) Two-spott Palm-civet (Nandinia binotata) Togo Hare (Lepus capensis) Source: Asibey, 1974 Species Rodents Bats Anteaters Primates Birds Reptiles Others Table 1. Bushmeat available in the Kantamanto Market, Accra, Ghana Remarks Besides large rodents such as hares (Lepus spp.), giant rats (Cricetomys spp.), cane rats or grasscutters (Thryonomys spp.), and porcupines (Hystrix spp. and Atherurus spp.), which are generally eaten by the total population, a number of small rodents are also eaten by children. These may include common house rats (Rattus spp.), which are given to children who are suffering from whooping cough as they are believ to have micinal value to such patients. All squirrels (Anomalurus spp., Funisciurus spp., Protoxerus spp., Heliosciurus spp., Idiurus spp., etc.) are eaten. Most fruit-bats (Eidolon spp.) are eaten. They may even be smok and pack in large quantities for markets All species of pangolins (Manis spp.) and ardvark (Orycteropus capensis) are consider to be a delicacy and their meat is expensive. All monkeys (Procolobus spp., Cercopithecus spp., and Papio spp.) as well as Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) are includ in the diet where they are available. Most birds, including birds of prey, sunbirds, and all herons, including Cattle Egrets (Bubulcus ibis), are consum All tortoises, turtles, both monitor lizards (Varanus spp.), African Python (Python sebae), Gaboon Viper (Bitis gabonica), Puff Adder (Bitis arietans), and the Night Adder (Causus maculatus), are consum. Children may eat Agama Lizards (Agama agama) Insects such as brown ants are consum, while the maggot of Palm
