We all have that one animal that we just are what others say way to in love with, like we need anything that has to do with that animal. Now I say that I want one of every cute little animal I see, but I think the one animal I would just love to have is....a pig! I love pigs of all shapes and sizes! I don't know why I love them so much, but I'm going to share with you 5 fun facts about pigs that most people don't know unless you are a true animal lover!
1. Mother pigs sing to their piglets
Piglets know the "voice" of their mother and will come running to her when they hear it and sows (momma pig) will sing to her babies while feeding them.
2. Pigs don't sweat
Pigs have few sweat glands, so one of the ways pigs keep cool is to play in the mud! So, that saying 'sweating like a pig' doesn't make any sense.
3. Pigs squeal... and loud
So, A pig's squeal can be as loud as 130 decibels – that’s just 10 decibels lower than the sound of a supersonic airliner. Though I love every sound they make.
4. Pigs can eat and digest human bone
Ever hear the phrase, "I'll feed you to the pigs?" Well, don't take it as a joke — pigs are one of the few animals that can eat and digest bones, even humans. There was a story once of a farmer who had a heart attack and fell into his pig pen, by the time they went looking for him all they found were his fake teeth ... Creepy, right? Don't care, still love pigs.
5. Pigs are smart and playful
Pigs are super smart. They can learn tricks and play games like soccer, they are also very social creatures. When they are kept in a group together they will snuggle up to sleep and it's even been suggested that pigs, like humans, have dreams.
I can't get over how wonderful of a creature pigs are I never will. I will however always love them and they will always be my favorite animals and I will forever want one to call my own. So one day I hope, one day. If you want to learn more fun facts about pigs, check out this page or this page
