Kindifarm’s piglets are very cute. They range from 2 weeks old to 3 months. They grow very quickly!
Interesting Pig facts:
Pigs can’t sweat like other mammals, so like to roll in mud to keep cool and prevent sunburn.
A pig’s foot has 4 toes.
Pigs have a good sense of direction, and can find their way home from long distances.
Pigs are very clean animals. They make sure their toilet area as far away from their bed as possible.
Pigs can smell very well, and will start to grunt a bit if you have some nice food nearby, such as ice cream!
Pigs feel insecure if their feet aren’t touching the ground, so can squeal extremely loudly when being picked up and carried. A pig can actually squeal 3 decibels higher than the sound of a supersonic airliner! Pig farmers carry them by their back legs for this reason.
Pigs learn from watching one another.
Pigs are very social animals. They form close bonds with each other and other species. Pigs enjoy close contact and will lie close together when resting. Pigs use their grunts to communicate with each other. They enjoy playing, and
a squeaky toy or ball will amuse them for hours!
A pig can run a kilometre in 4 and a half minutes.
Pigs are very clean animals. They keep their toilets far from their living or eating area.
Pigs excel at video games that would be hard for a young child!
