A member of the suid family, it is characterized by a body full of black or grey bristles.

Its average size is about 90 cm and 85 kg.

Its meat is dark, lean and has a strong flavour.

They can be found in rocky areas in the Iberian Peninsula, and usually roam around  crops. They are called “jabatos” until they are six months old, and are the most appreciated. “Jaros” are those from six months to one-year-old and their meat is edible even though it is darker and has a stronger flavour. When they are older, they are not gastronomically appreciated.

Its ideal weight is between 15 and 20 kg and you can tell  their age by looking at the colour of their hair (it becomes greyer as they get older).

They must always be castrated as soon as they die so that they will not leave a bad smell and taste.
