Did you know?

Pigs love to root. Rooting is when pigs turn over the earth by digging with their snout. A pig’s flat nose has a large, round disk of cartilage at the end – this makes it good for rooting around in the ground.

Unlike people, pigs cannot sweat, so to cool themselves on a hot day pigs love to have mud baths.

Reputation

Pigs are actually very clean animals; for example, they will not go to the toilet near where they eat or sleep.


Pigs are social animals.
They form close bonds with others
and enjoy lying down together.
