I am a huge fan of pigs. When I noticed that we hadn’t posted any in a while, and found this little piggy, I knew he would be the topic of today’s post. Just so you are aware, a sus scrofa is simply the word for a wild boar, or wild pig, and this is actually the wild ancestor of today’s domestic pigs according to Wikipedia’s Wild Boar article. This young pig in particular certainly has gotten his little snout dirty in those autumn leaves! What a goofy guy. I bet he had fun sniffing around, don’t you?
