Which are your favorite foods? As you think of the answers, Thomas Odembo, a 35 year old watchman by profession from Ogongo village in Nyatike Sub County has chameleons, lizards and tortoises as his favourite food.

Mr Odembo says he developed appetite and interests on chameleons, lizards, tortoises, cats and dogs when he was employed as a guard for a Chinese supplier.

Odembo who rears his own animals to feed on in his compound says everyone should try his tastes.

“These food is actually healthy and totally sweet that any other red or white meats that people are eating.” Odembo told a local daily.

“I have lost appetite for cow and goat meat. I don’t eat pork too. I have enough chameleons and tortoises for myself and I’m ready to supply the village the surplus,” Odembo said.

“I took chameleon last night for supper, this tortoise was brought by a neighbor who found it in his garden,” Odembo said.

Odembo the father of seven says he learnt how to rear and prepare these animals from his former bosses, the Chinese.

Odembo says the Chinese eat these animals and they don’t affect them. He is urging all the fellow village people to start embracing this new diet.

Odembo went ahead and explained that the animals taste just like ordinary meat.

“My favourite meal time and again is reptiles especially snakes, lizards, chameleons and tortoise. My wife, Pauline Akoth and my seven children don’t eat my food. They call it trash and poison” Odembo explained.
