That's the problem Mick, if my memory serves me correctly feral animals of some kind, whether dogs or pigs, can't remember decimated the Tuatara population to near extinction along with other factors.

I would imagine if you ate one Mick and were caught doing so they'd put you way beneath the slammer!
