Visayan warty piglets in Budapest – VIDEO
According to Budapest Zoo, this is the first time that Visayan warty piglets have been born in Hungary. This critically endangered species in the pig genus, endemic to the Philippines, have been on show in our zoo since early autumn.
We managed to breed these critically endangered Visayan warty pigs (Sus cebifrons) sooner than expected. This species of the pig genus, endemic to the Philippines, more precisely to Negros, Panay and Mastabe island, have been on show in our zoo since early autumn. The express aim of our institution in dealing with these animals was to save this endangered species by breeding them at the zoo, however, our conservative estimates predicted the arrival of piglets no sooner than next year. However, the two breeding animals had other plans in mind and so the sow brought her piglets into the world on 16 November.
