Pigs can live for up to 25 years.
A pig’s snout is 2,000 times more sensitive than a human’s nose. Pigs love to root. Rooting is when a pig turns over the earth by digging into it 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.
Pigs do not have sweat glands, which is why they enjoy wallowing in the mud.
Did you know that pigs have toes? They have four toes on each hoof and can run up to 17km per hour.
Pigs are sentient, which means they can feel pleasure and pain just like we do.
There are around two billion pigs in the world today. Sadly, most of them live in factory farms.
Pigs are social animals. They form close bonds with others and enjoy playing and sleeping together.
