Chomp Chomp: Guangzhou Supermarket Selling Crocodile Meat?!
May 08, 2013 By eChinacities.com

If anyone’s going to be into the consumption of endangered species, it’s gotta be the Cantonese, right?

Pictures recently emerged of a large supermarket in Guangzhou selling crocodile meat. Although it hasn’t yet been confirmed which chain it is, the large supermarket (Wal-Mart?) has been selling the meat at different prices depending on body part, with the most expensive section (the feet) fetching 40 USD per kilogram.

Crocodiles aren't exactly endangered. And it's not just Guangzhou--you can also get crocodile in Nanning, Guangxi. Southern Chinese eat everything. :D
