Yes. In the same way "boeuf" is cow... We often (and did historically) refer to the animals by the main meat they produce in France. It's why in English the meat from a pig is called "pork", because it's a translation of "porc" - your meat names are nearly all the French names for the creature :)

Porc and cochon are synonyms. You could also say the old "pourceau", "verrat" for the male and "truie" for the female ^^.

How synonymous are they? In English, we have loads of nuanced terms for varieties of a given species.

To parallel your example, a pig (unweaned young hog) is different from piglet (newborn hog), shoat (weaned hog), boar (mature male hog), barrow (immature castrated male), stag (mature castrated male), sow (littered female), gilt (unlittered female), or specific terms like runt (undersized piglet) or mummy (stillborn undeveloped foetus), and only pig or hog would be a correct translation.

Verrat and truie are more specific indeed. But I can assure you that Porc, Cochon and Pourceau are synonyms in French.

that's one of the funny little things about European history. After 1066 (Hastings) the normandic kings ruled England for some time. Since the court was still French (-speaking), they demanded the food to be presented in French to them. And some time later, since pigsmeat was for peasants, but the same meat as "porc" was for kings, clever farmers started to name the meat "porc" to make it sound more fancy. It's the same with beef (boeuf), mutton (mouton) poultry (poule) and some other food types

Just curious, why have sheep & lamb in there? No other animals have the young animal (ie, calf, kitten, kid, etc). Maybe put a trickier one in it's place, perhaps moose or deer.

I was just guessing random animals because I know very little French. When sheep appeared I never thought to try lamb. Perhaps that one was thrown in to separate the sheep from the goats. :)

It is actually both. We have only one word in French for tortoise and turtle (we have to specify "tortue terrestre" or "tortue marine" if we want to make a difference between the two English words)
