OINK!
Happy #nationalpigday🐷  Here’s some fabulous piggy facts to celebrate our porcine pals:
🐷Highly Intelligent: Pigs are among the most intelligent animals, often compared to dogs in terms of problem-solving abilities and social complexity.
🐷Social Creatures: Pigs are highly social animals and form close bonds with one another. They often communicate through various vocalizations and body language.
🐷Omnivorous Diet: Pigs are omnivores, meaning they eat both plant matter and animal protein. Their diet can include grains, fruits, vegetables, and even small animals if available.
🐷Excellent Sense of Smell: Pigs have a remarkable sense of smell, even better than that of dogs. This keen sense of smell helps them locate food underground.
🐷Playful Nature: Pigs are naturally playful animals and enjoy engaging in various activities such as running, rooting, and exploring their surroundings. 
🐷Unique Vocalizations: Pigs have a wide range of vocalizations, including grunts, squeals, and oinks, which they use to communicate with each other and with humans.
