Cobra Hamburgers

Here's a slideshow about cobras in Indonesia being harvested for hamburgers. It consists of pictures showing the process, along with information about why these people want to consume these venomous snakes. One of the pictures even shows the resemblance of a cobra burger to a regular hamburger. It is just one of the controversial issues regarding wildlife conservation, in which some people would go and find a wild substitute for a domestic animal like a cow whose meat has always fed mankind for generations. In addition to cobras, other animals have also been victims of being served as fast food. For example, Japan has been known to serve burgers made of whalemeat. Recently, a restaurant in Arizona served customers burgers made of lion meat as a way to attract soccer fans after South Africa failed to qualify to the knockout stage during the World Cup.
