That all looks pretty normal to me; other than Python and Bear I've had everything on that list and some of it is definitely standard table fare depending on where you are in the world when eating!

All that looks fairly normal to me depending on where one lives. Caviar, Sturgeon and orange (salmon), one can buy in many supermarkets. Duck and goose every hunting season. Kangaroo I've not tried. Berry fed black bear can be tasty. Brown bear? Not so tasty. Game birds? Hardly weird in my opinion.

Monkey brains is probably the most exotic thing I run across in my travels. Seal, whale blubber, etc. are all fairly normal along most of Alaska's norther coastal villages. Acquired tastes to be sure but, common enough not to be considered exotic..

I suppose "weird" is dependant on where you've lived.
