Denmark’s Odense Zoo welcomed five Miniature Pig babies on November 20. The Piglets are thriving under the care of their mother, and are getting accustomed to their home in the zoo’s farmhouse.

Miniature Pigs are popular as pets or on small farms, and though they can weigh up to 200 pounds as adults, are far smaller than a typical domestic pig. Pigs are intelligent animals and can be house-trained and to perform behaviors.
Like all Pigs, Miniature Pigs have an excellent sense of smell. They use their stubby snouts to dig for roots and tubers, and will also feed on a variety of plant material and small animals.
