Oh, so pork = pigsmeat. That's cool how the animal is followed by meat. How many of the meats follow this rule? Chicken and fish doesn't (to my knowledge) but do all the others?

Almost all do: Rundvlees (beef), Lamsvlees (Lamb), and, though not very common, kippenvlees is possible as well. Visvlees just sounds weird and isn't used.

Yeah, so me too; "pigflesh" is not considered Duolingo correct (yet). Great band name, though.
