Animals That Are Served as Food... Alive!

Updated 13 Oct 2018 18.9k views12 items

There aren't that many animals humans are willing to eat while they're still alive, but there are enough out there to remind you that yes, humans are and always will be animals, too. And the other animals eaten alive the most by humans tend to be quite a bit smaller than us, but sometimes we get ballsy and stare at a big ol' fish right in its fishy eyeballs while we eat its deep-fried flesh.

Why do we engage in this savage practice? Some say live animals just taste better, while some do it for sport or novelty. Regardless, there appears to be no signs of this practice slowing down. Here's a look at a dozen creatures served while still alive and kicking.
