A descendent of the wild boar, "sus mediterraneus" that once inhabited the forests of the entire Mediterranean shoreline the Ibérico pig still roams free.  The last free ranging and grazing pigs in Europe, they are an integral piece of an ecosystem that exists solely  in the dehesas of the southwestern Iberian Peninsula.

 His characteristic:  long, thin, and strong legs, a pointed snout perched upon a short, meaty neck.  His hair is dark but scant and hooves, dark-colored thus giving him the popular name of "pata negra" or "black foot." The Ibérico, with its diet of acorns and other naturally growing plants of the dehesa, is responsible for the unsurpassed taste and quality of  the traditional Dry-cured hams and sausages of Spain.
