Keith Connell of Canada first brought the Pot-bellied pigs into the United States in the early 1980s creating a pet pig craze that still exists. Intelligent, clean, gentle and easily house trained are all qualities that endear these little roly-poly pigs to pet lovers and backyard hobbyists. Pot-bellied pigs can be black, white, spotted and bluish gray. Pot Bellied Pig get along well with other animals and when treated gently, are wonderful pets for children. At the Natural Bridge Zoo, you will often see one of our little mother sows waddling around the zoo with her little piglets waiting to steal your feed and have their pictures taken.
