Catalina- You certainly can! My dad got me a gift pack of exotic meats last year for Christmas. It included antelope, alligator, kangaroo and ostrich. The alligator was fantastic and actually didn't taste at all like chicken. I cooked it up with peppers and onions in fajita spices. It also works well in a chowder.
Reptiles and amphibians seem to tend towards a fishy-sort of texture. Somewhat like shark. Kinda meaty.
