VIETNAMESE POT-BELLIED PIGS
- Pigs don’t have very good eyesight, but they do have excellent senses of smell and hearing
- In the wild pigs can form groups of very large numbers. Herd members communicate with a variety of squeaks, grunts and other noises, including different sneezes
- Pot-bellied Pigs are very smart, and can be trained to follow basic commands – very much like you would train a puppy!
- In the wild pigs often wallow in the mud. This is because their skin is very sensitive to the sun, and the mud acts as a kind of “piggy sunscreen”.
- Whilst closely related to the domestic pig, Vietnamese Pot Bellies have straighter tails, longer snouts, and more upright ears – and of course pot bellies!
You will usually find our Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pigs located outside in The Paddocks
