ok..so some say this is unique for our country but other sources tell me this cute little rodents can be found all over Europe. don't really know about the US.
after seeing a few festive partyes thrown in favour of the little critter and constantly hearing about how good the dormice stew is...hey, gotta try it
really, i have not heard a single man say "phew, bleh, ugh disgousting, i'll never eat it again".
also, they are valued for their "magic" grease. i have heard someone cured throat cancer, another one had a throu and throu wound on his cheek-doesn't even have a scar.
and at the end, their fur is soooooo cute, unfortunatelly you need (i think) around 40 to make yourself a furry hat.
anyway, caught my first this night
