I am so repulsed by bacon culture. Bacon had a mom. You can give up bacon because pigs are friggin awesome.
1⃣ Pigs rank #4 in animal intelligence behind chimpanzees, dolphins and elephants. Piglets learn their names by two to three weeks of age and respond when called.
2⃣ Pigs are very social animals. They form close bonds with each other and other species. Pigs enjoy close contact and will lie close together when resting. Pigs use their grunts to communicate with each other.
3⃣ Pigs are very clean animals. They keep their toilets far from their living or eating area. Even piglets only a few hours old will leave the nest to relieve themselves.
4⃣ Pigs have no sweat glands, so they can’t sweat. They roll around in the mud to cool their skin. The layer of dried mud protects their skin from the ☀ sun. If available, pigs, who are great swimmers, prefer water to mud.
5⃣ Pigs have a great sense of smell. Their powerful but sensitive snout is a highly developed sense organ. Pigs also have a great field of vision, because their eyes are on the sides of their heads.
6⃣ A pig can run a 7 minute mile.
7⃣ Pigs can scream. The scream of a jet engine ✈ taking off measures 113 decibels. The scream of a frightened pig can measure 115 decibels.
Pigs are friends, not food. Let the oink be with you! #vegansofig
