They were displayed as a part of the menu. Despite the weird teeth, they are actually kinda cute. And have very soft fur. Although officially forbidden, restaurants in Fenghuang openly serve them.

    Interesting. Why are they forbidden? Health reasons or endangered species status?

      I do not know. I showed a Chinese friend the photos in order to know what it is and he said that you are not allowed to eat them. Now I guess I have to find out why 😉
