The Lamb Lies Down on Malaysia

So we're sitting down at our table in the Menara revolving restaurant atop the KL Telecomm tower and I look over the shoulder of the person across from me and see this roasted carcass. We're all pointing at it trying to figure out exactly what kind of animal it started out being. I thought it was a kangaroo but the tail wasn't long enough and besides roo meat tends to be a bit chewy when roasted.

We finally broke down and asked the waiter "Apa itu?"
(which means, "What in the wide wide world of sports is that thing?")
He simply replied "lamb".

Reminded me of another special barnyard foodchain friend I met a long time ago in China.
