Unfortunately I can't take a picture right now.
The lettuce has the same shape as romaine, but the crispy consistency of iceberg lettuce but with darker leaves. It's called Cosmopolitan here & I'm unsure of it's nutritional value, where I assume it has a bit more water just like iceberg. Is it possibly some kind of hybrid between the two?
 
Googled it and turns out it is a hybrid. I feel like I've seen these before, but I didn't buy some because I wasn't sure if it's okay for piggies. (broken link removed)
 
Ah yes that's the one, thanks!
It should have a higher nutritional value than iceberg based on the color at least, if grandma's right. "The greener the better."
