When I went to the butcher recently, I picked up two Mangalitsa heads. I took them home to make stock and get the head meat. The meat in the plastic container is meat from the two heads. The meat is darker than typical pork, and it has a stronger flavor. The jaw muscle is a real treat - very lean, flavorful meat, but very tough.
The bottom teeth of the pigs don't look very sharp, but pigs can easily break skin when they use them. If a pig, even a piglet, bites you with those back teeth, it really hurts.
