A pig is any of the mammals in the Sus genus, which belongs to the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Domestic pigs and their progenitor, the common Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa), are among the several kinds of pigs. Pigs are native to the Eurasian and African continents, spanning from Europe to the Pacific islands, as are all suids. The babirusa of Indonesia, the pygmy hog of South Asia, the warthog of Africa, and other pig taxa from Africa are suids other than the pig. The suids are a peccary’s sibling clade.

Piglets are the name for young pigs. Pigs are clever and sociable creatures.

The domestic pig is one of the most numerous big mammals on the planet, with about 1 billion individuals alive at any given moment. Pigs are omnivores, meaning they can eat a broad variety of foods. Because pigs are biologically comparable to humans, they are widely utilized in medical research.

A typical pig has a big head and a long snout, which is reinforced by a prenasal bone and a cartilage disk at the tip. The snout is a very sensitive sensory organ that is utilized to burrow into the dirt in search of food. Each foot has four hoofed toes, the two bigger center toes bearing the majority of the weight, although the outer two are also employed on soft terrain.

Mother pigs in captivity may occasionally savage their own piglets, especially if they are agitated. Some attacks on newborn pigs do not result in death. Others may trigger the piglets’ mortality, and the mother may consume the piglets at times. The mother aggressively or accidentally crushing the newborn pre-weaned animals is thought to be the cause of 50% of piglet deaths.


Any food resource is available to the wild boar (Sus scrofa). As a result, they may survive in almost any fertile environment that has adequate water to support large animals like pigs. Increased foraging by wild boars in particular locations might result in a nutritional deficit, causing the pig population to decline. The pig population will most likely expand if the nutritional situation returns to normal, due to the pigs’ naturally increasing reproductive rate.

Pigs are omnivores, meaning they eat both plant and animal matter. They are foraging creatures in the wild, consuming mostly leaves, roots, fruits, and flowers, as well as insects and fish. Pigs are given a diet consisting primarily of maize and soybean meal, with vitamins and minerals supplemented.

They were once known as “mortgage lifters” because of their capacity to utilise surplus milk, as well as whey from cheese and butter production, in combination with pasture. The water consumption of older pigs ranges from three to five liters per day. The ideal healthy diet for pigs maintained as pets is a balanced diet of fresh vegetables, however some owners may feed their pigs standard micro pig pellet feed.
