So, you see pigs and probably think of them as those sweaty, dirty animals. But you are so wrong, pigs are amazing. Keep reading and you will learn about their unique qualities in a minute.
1. Pigs can’t fly but they can squeal
A pig’s squeal can be as loud as 115 decibels – that’s 3 decibels higher than the sound of a supersonic airliner.
2. Pigs communicate
Pigs communicate constantly with each other, and more than 20 different vocalisations have been identified; from wooing a mate to saying ‘I’m hungry!”
3. Pigs can run !
Adult pigs can run at speeds of up to 11mph, or in other words, they can run a seven-minute mile. Could you do any better?
4. Pigs don’t sweat
If you’ve ever suggested that someone was ‘sweating like a pig’, then you’d be wrong. Pigs have hardly any sweat glands, and one of the best ways for them to cool down is to wallow in all of that glorious mud
5. Pigs can eat anything
When they’re not either squealing or talking, pigs will eat almost anything – including human bones. This makes them quite dangerous.
