Although Charles Darwin was a vegetarian he became vegetarian later in life. In fact his early university years were spent as a member of the Gourmet Society where he and his university colleagues would eat all manner of animals including bats, hedgehog, owls and similar anumals to discuss their taste. Having said that, it does show that even late in life Darwin made the right decision and became a fully fledged vegetarian. Proof that with age, comes wisdom.
