Pigs & Warthogs

Peccary Piglets and Pumpkins

In under one week, four Chacoan peccaries were born at the LA Zoo. Lucky for them, they were just in time for Halloween and got to enjoy some delicious pumpkin treats. Closely related to pigs, these little guys are native to Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay and were thought extinct until 1972 when they were rediscovered. See them this weekend at Boo at the Zoo!

These camouflaged little oinkers really blend in with their surroudings...
