"It is very tasty with a tomato and garlic sauce, over a bed of rice," says monkey dealer Marie-Jan at the meat and fish section of Kinshasa's central open air market.

Shoppers bustle over slime and fish guts mashed into the tile flooring while a young, bound crocodile tries to make a break for it under the tortoise shelf.
Severed goat heads stare up vacuously from a table and two men haggle over the price of a bucket of squirming grubs.
Giant snail and various species of antelope are other delicacies shipped down the Congo river to the Congolese capital Kinshasa, once hailed as the Paris of Africa.
