Exotic meat tacos at a Florida restaurant are causing a big uproar.

The small tacos at Tampa's Taco Fusion restaurant look enticing and many who try them say they are tasty. The meat in question -- lion meat.

It has some people wondering if it's even legal to serve something on the endangered species list.

The specialty tacos cost about $35. The restaurant also serves other exotic meats, such as beaver tacos and camel tacos.

Brad Barnett, the restaurant's operation manager, says it is all legal. His message to people: "If you don't like it, don't eat it."
