    I am in California where there are no alligators in the wild. However I did see some cuts of alligator in a retail butcher shop the other day. LOL/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rollsmile.gif

    Here is a link to alligator meat in Louisiana http://www.alligatorfur.com/meat.htm

    I have tried all the cajun grocery stores on line and none of them have tail meat. This is what we served in the restaurant and for some reason it is no where to be found. I was hoping someone could tell me as to why this happened. I can get farm raised tail meat but for $21 bucks a pound plus shipping but our local fish market where I use to get it can't get it nor any other market I call that normally has it.

    The website has tail meat at  $ 14.25 for 32 oz.

    Alligator is the very first item under Fresh Seafood.
