I was amazed when I saw it in a friend’s Facebook update. At first I really thought it was a small cow. But a closer look revealed that it is, in fact, a big pig.
Roasted pigs or lechon are commonly medium-sized. And then of course, there’s the premium lechon de leche or roasted young pig. But huge roasted pigs are virtually unheard of.
