Penguin here.

In case you’ve never heard of one, the red river hog is from Africa where, according to Wikipedia, it lives mostly in rainforests, especially those of Guinea and Congo.
This particular little pair of hogs is from the Virginia Zoological Park and the picture was taken in 2007. What really drew me to this picture was the fact that the baby hoglet is doing the exact same thing as his/her mother. She/He’s perfectly imitating her. The only difference between the two is the position of their hind legs and the fact that the mother is quite a bit larger than her baby.
