[Extract] Walking down the aisle of a traditional market or supermarket in many cities in Southeast Asia, you can find frogs sold for human consumption, either live or as fresh skinless legs. Although they are not consumed as universally as are other aquatic taxa such as fish and prawns, frogs have traditionally been used as food in many cultures. People in most regions of the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa the Americas, and Australia, consume frogs. Usually, only the legs are eaten. Frogs’legs are often considered to be delicacies, and are sometimes highly appreciated as a unique dish, for example “les cuisses de grenouilles” of France.
