The Back Story
Babies are called piglets. Young swine are called pigs. Adult males are called boar (or hogs) and females are called sows.
Swine are ranked #4 in animal intelligence. Because of their foraging skills and excellent sense of smell, pigs are used in Europe to hunt for truffles (fungi). Pigs were one of the first domesticated animals and were being raised by the Chinese over 6,000 years ago.
