    pigs are very intelligent but they can be nasty, they bite. The males are more aggressive but the females can be especially nasty when they have little ones. Contrary to popular belief they are very clean animals. the like the mud only to keep themselves cool in the hot weather, given the choice they like a clean pig pen. And they can be housebroken if you'd want one in your house. And remember they get big, some really really big.

    Pot-bellied pigs don't get more than 200 pounds but still what a monster!

    They are cute, though. Here's some info on them:
