One Two Three Little Piglets!


What's sweeter than baby pigs? Miniature baby pigs! These three little Juliana pigs, two boys and a girl, were born on April 1 and have arrived to play and grow at the Cincinnati Zoo Children's Zoo nursery. The orange one is a male named Cinder. Of the two spotted piglets, the male is named Thatcher, and the little female is named Magnolia. 

These are domestic pigs, bred for their small size. Mini Juliana pigs are usually spotted and come in a variety of colors. These babies will eventually weigh between 20-50 pounds on a diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, bugs, worms and eggs, and grow to be about 2 feet in length. This breed can live to be between 15 and 20 years old.
