Hocico

I read the word hocico yesterday and had no idea what it meant, but it just looked funny. I pulled out the dictionary with a smile on my face and was not disappointed. It is the word snout, as in a pig’s nose.

It can also be used idiomatically to mean stick one’s nose into something: meter el hocico en algo. Or to fall on one’s face: caer de hocicos.
