Day 40: Piggy!! Oink!

 Hello again audience, today's pictures are of these cute little pigs from the farm which would not stop eating! haha they also like it when people stuck there finger up their noses! today I do not have much writing energy left as I have been doing an assignment all day on BATS, it was really really interesting and  I actually enjoyed writing it. I think bats are now my favourite animal! so I thought a good question for today would be what is your favourite animal!?

         I am sorry I have had no inspiration for anything more for today's blog but i hope you enjoy the pictures and I hope you week is going well. thank you for reading and see you tomorrow! 

Now some random facts! 

A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig, its ancestor the wild boar, and several other wild relatives. Pigs are omnivores and are highly social and intelligent animals.

A typical pig has a large head with a long snout which is strengthened by a special prenasal bone and by a disk of cartilage at the tip. The snout is used to dig into the soil to find food and is a very acute sense organ. There are four hoofed toes on each foot, with the two larger central toes bearing most of the weight, but the outer two also being used in soft ground.

With around 2 billion individuals alive at any time, the domesticated pig is one of the most numerous large mammals on the planet.
The ancestor of the domesticated pig is the wild boar, which is one of the most numerous and widespread large mammals.
