|Teacup Piglets For Sale|
|Are you looking for a pet pig that will stay the size of a teacup (or any other crockery that you fancy)? Good! Then you've come to the right place because you need to hear that such pigs don't exist! Not even the pixies on table mountain have any!
The truth is that the photos that we saw on our computer screens of spotted piggies next to teacups were day-old babies bred by Pennywell Farm in England. They describe their adult pigs as Springer Spaniel size (labrador size).
Piglets, like all other baby mammals, change dramatically in size and looks by the time that they are adults – even if they are dwarfs.
|Adult human dwarfs don’t look like babies! Their bodies are tiny compared to normal sized humans, but they are huge compared to babies.Their faces and bodies are rough adult faces and bodies, with sharp noses and face bones. Human babies have smooth round faces with small snub noses and soft skin.
And so it is with miniature pigs. They are tiny compared to farm pigs (under knee-height compared to above waist-height) but are huge compared to their babies. They also don’t look like them - their heads get rough features and their noses sprout longer too! (Actually some of my pigs’ noses sprout a lot, so maybe I should call them ‘Pinocchio Pigs’!. They get thick tough skin and hair.
