Fattiest cuts/limbs of freshly dead land animals @ grocery store?

What are the fattest cuts/limbs of freshly dead land animals (so excluding bacon, brisket, etc.) at a local grocery store? I know I can look up what cuts of a cattle contain the most fat, but then again I know that typical, large chain grocery stores only carry a few of those cuts. So of the more common choices, which are the fattiest which respect to beef, pork, and poultry?

Nice chart here that shows the leanest & fattiest common steak cuts:

Most supermarkets also put the % fat on the ground beef packaging.

It is hard to find really fatty pork at the supermarket. Pork shoulder might be fatty, but it depends -- some stores cut all the fat off. Ditto w/ pork chops.

Any dark meat poultry is fattier than white meat, and if you eat the skin obviously you'll get more.

[And meant to add: both ground pork and ground lamb tend to be fatty, if your store carries them]
