Domestic Pig (Sus scrofa domesticus)

Origin: Europe/Near East
Sighted at: Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary, Austin, TX

I first saw this pig with my sister Kyle and her friend Patrick. Patrick was raised on a farm, so pigs were nothing special for him. Kyle and I are from Key West, and were in no way prepared to see a pig that’s the size of a VW Beetle. Kyle laughed for about 25 minutes without stopping. It was literally incredible.
