Well shrimp are cannibals anyway, they eat basically anything they find. Dwarf shrimp like I have mostly eat microorganisms, but carrion, dead plants and faeces are on the menu too.

There once was a dwarf in a cave,
who many would consider brave.
With a head like a block
he went out for a sock,
his ass I won't bother to save.

Don't we have a taboo against eating other primates anyways?

The degree of taboo is proportional to the degree of economic advantage.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Yeah... far as I'm aware our only real aversion to other primates is that they apparently aren't the best meat in the world. Other than that, like with most things, if they're around people will eat them. I'd say around and won't kill you to eat, but... fugu. Conditionally deadly doesn't actually stop us. Availability is the major barrier, taboo a distant runner up when it even exists.

There's some African book which starts with an old woman refusing to eat monkey because it was so taboo. It highlighted that the white man had destroyed all other food options.

Also the most likely introduction of HIV into our species!


At least more likely than another theory I'd heard, which was "Furfags fucking a chimpanzee", as espoused by a scholar and a gentleman I had the misfortune of interacting with on a forum many, many years ago.

This, if the monkey meat were really tasty and/or they were easy to bread and produce enough meat what do you think would happen.
