Pigs are animals in the Sus genus within the Suidae family.  There are several species.  Domesticated pigs come from their ancestors - the wild boar. 

The phrase "dirty as a pig" is not accurate since pigs are actually very clean animals.  They will not poop anywhere near where they eat or live, and will pick a place to go to the toilet far away.  Even baby pigs, called “piglets” will leave their nest to poop.  Because they are so clean, many people keep small pot-bellied pigs as pets in their homes.

Why then do pigs usually look dirty and muddy?  Since pigs have no sweat glands they need to cover themselves with mud to protect their skin from the sun in order to keep themselves cool.

In the hierarchy (that means the ranking order) of animal intelligence, pigs are fourth on the list.  The top three smartest animals are chimpanzees, dolphins, and elephants.  Some animal behaviourists consider pigs to be as smart as a typical three-year-old child.  

Did you know....

that a male pig is called a "boar"?  and a female pig is called a "sow" if she has had piglets and a "gilt" if she hasn't?   In the farming industry, the term "swine" is used frequently.  Swine is the plural form used to describe male and female pigs of all ages.  The term "pig" usually refers to young swine, while "hog" means a mature swine.

   

Fun pig facts….

- That pigs are “omnivores” which means that they eat both plants and animals?|
- Domesticated pigs are called swine.
- Their bristly hairs are used to make brushes!
- Pigs have four hoofed toes on each foot.  Their feet are called “trotters”.
- That pork makes up 38% of the world’s meat production?
- Pigs are very social animals and like to have close contact with each other.  They form close bonds.
- Pigs are quite docile animals and only sows show aggression when her piglets are threatened.
- Pigs have an excellent sense of smell.
- Adult pigs can run up to 11 miles an hour.
- While human tongues have 9,000 taste buds, a pig’s tongue has 15,000!
