Car629: Have people really eaten some of these animals?

I only put up animal types I had eaten - but I didn't eat the individual in the shot. Not yet at least. lol. I don't eat monkeys and dogs, so I left those out :)

RuthC: This is an interesting challenge theme, and one which will give the entrants great scope for their photography, but to set the maximum number of entries at 750!!! FAR TOO MANY!
Voters, in my experience of other large challenges, will steer away from trying to vote on all entries, and will vote in thumb-nail views, or 'cherry-pick' the few they like, instead of looking at all the entries. (Not really fair to all those who have put their works in, to be viewed and assessed by voters.)
Wouldn't it be better to have a challenge with 100 as its maximum number, and then have Challenge#2, #3, #4....?
Just my thoughts on the subject.

Yeah. I tend to glaze over when it's more than 100 entries. lol. Even 200 is a bit much and I might tend to skip the 200 ones in the future.

(edit) Also don't think you need 3 per person. 2 is more than enough. Even 1 is good as it forces the entrant to 'pick the best'.

Hmm. Tick on cow. Sounds legit. lol.

Oh, by the way, that was some pain I had to endure for the shot even tho it didn't get to the bone :)

There was a small temptation to put up a photo of a person, but I have only eaten very small amounts of people. :)
