  The study assessed the anatomical weight, proximate, mineral and in vitro digestibility compositions. The economic and organoleptic evaluations were conducted using standard methods. Protein and ash contents were high in all the samples, fat and fibre were low. Anatomical values showed that life weights of giant rat and grasscutter were the highest, 1161.2 and 3164 g, respectively. The abundant mineral values (mg 100 g-1) were K, Na, Ca and Mg having mean values of 529.8, 622.6, 477.3 and 514.5, respectively. The trace elements were present in amounts that could contribute to the RDA. The lead levels were low, but it would be advisable not to consume meats that are high in this element due to its carcinogenic effect. The digestibility values were between 59.96 (pigeon bird) and 68.25% (giant rat). Biological Value (BV), Net Protein Utilization (NPU) and Net Protein Value (NPV) were high. Economically, the cheaper sources of protein were found to be bat, cattle egret and cuban boa. From the results, it was observed that nutritional qualities of the bush meats were comparable to conventional meats.
