Exotic Meats at the Beijing Zoo

The restaurant at the Beijing zoo serves up some exotic animals, with the menu including crocodile, scorpion, peacock, the webbed toes of a hippopotamus, kangaroo tail, deer's penis, and a bowl of ant soup. There's outrage and controversy as the news hits the Western press, but "in the wake of the negative coverage... staff said they would be revising the menu." [Guardian via Cold Mud]
