About Vietnamese Pot-bellied Pigs:

Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs are a native swine of Southeast Asia (primarily in the Nam Định province of Vietnam) and since the 1980s have been imported into the United States as pets. In the wild, these pigs tend to form herds of considerable numbers. While in these herds, the pigs communicate with a variety of squeaks, grunts, gurgles, sneezes, and other sounds.

Did You Know?!

  • Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs’ skin lacks hair, so they are very sensitive to the sun. In the wild, they wallow in the mud to stay cool and protect their skin.
  • Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs use their snouts to forage for food! See if you can spot our pigs digging in the dirt with their nose!
  • Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs have poor vision but excellent senses of smell and hearing.
