Did you know?

1. Pigs are one of the world's most intelligent animals. Pigs only sweat from their noses, and they bathe in mud to cool down. Pigs can get sunburned, and in summer they may need protection from the sun. Then sunscreen works, but a mud bath also works. 

2. They don't see very well, but they have a very good sense of smell. The nose is very sensitive, and they use it to navigate and find food. They also use their noses to dig with. 
3. Pigs often sleep nose to nose. When a pig grunts, the sound can be louder than a jet engine. They have over 20 different sounds that they communicate with. 

Tangen Dyrepark has 4 pigs: CodyMarley, Øffe, and Gifle.
