Does anyone know of other actual examples of edible animal species that have regenerative parts?


Several species of lizard can shed their tails to escape danger while leaving a wriggling tail to distract the predator. They regenerate the tails in a few months time. I suppose one could make a dish of lizard tails but I'm told one could starve to death eating only lizard taiks, not enough fat in lizard flesh to sustain us.

Why the need to regenerate?

You could eat a Ram's leg and he can still reproduce - the resulting lambs will have legs and the cycle can continue.

You could put frogs in wheelchairs and start a similar cycle
