Just When You Think You Know What This Animal Is… You’re Wrong. And Really Confused.

There’s an animal you probably don’t know… but you’re about to find out why you should. It’s called the Mangalitsa and it hails from Hungary circa 1830. It’s healthy, it puts on a lot of weight, and supposedly it tastes fantastic.

Oh… and it looks a lot like a sheep.

The Mangalitsa is the only remaining pig in the world with a hairy sheep-like fleece. If you’ve ever watched Iron Chef, in 2012, an entire Mangalitsa pig was actually the secret ingredient in one of the episodes.

I’m not a vegetarian, but I draw the line at eating huggable, fluffy pigs. Share this rare breed with others below.
