I'm actually very interested in trying it. (snake wine that is)
Anything that moves and was alive (and isn't a machine of some sort) is edible according to the chinese (they eat shark fins).
Oh and I hear that aligator is quite tasty.

fried spiders are actually not as bad as you would think, they don't really have a taste other than "burnt"
fried crickets as well are not bad, I didn't have the guts to eat a live one, though our waiter ate one first and assured us it was very tasty
bbq snake on a stick also isnt too bad, kind of like a very dense fish, like cod almost, only maybe a bit more rubbery
intestines however (didn't bother asking what animal they were from, are definitely not pleasent tasting.
and snake wine, jesus christ the stuff is like really bad, REALLY strong whiskey, some of it is almost moonshine.
oh, and for your viewing pleasure, here's a photo of a spider like the one I tried, unfortunately noone had a camera when i actually took a bite.
and who the hell knows I might have eaten dog
