Reviewer: Barry from da yooper, eh!
The fried rattlesnake is very good. I titled this dangerous as one has to catch the snake before it can be eaten, thus my one star rating on preparation. I would consider this to be a southwestern US dish, which is where I've had it. If you ever get the chance, try it!
