One of the most common farm animals around the world, pigs have been domesticated since around 13,000 B.C. The genus Sus contains many of the most well-known pig species, the pot-bellied pig included. Because pot-bellied pigs descended from boars like many other pig species, they are often able to interbreed with other types of domesticated pigs. In fact, many groups of pot-bellied pigs are genetically dissimilar from one another, simply because they’ve bred with other pig species over the years.
The Large White Pig, also called Large White Swine, lives up to its name, being both big in size and white-haired (though the pinkish skin often shows through the thin fur covering).
Scientific Name: Sus scrofa domesticus
Characteristics: This figure of the Large White showcases the common traits of the breed, including its long body, large ears and of course, the distinctive snout and curled tail.
Size and Color: This figure measures 4 inches long and 2 ¼ inches tall, a bit larger than a credit card. The pig is a light peach color, to reflect the animal’s thin white fur over pink skin. The interior of its ears and its hooves are darker, and its nose is pink with brown nostrils. Its eyes are black, its mouth line is dark brown, and its underside is pink.
The Large White Pig is part of the Safari Farm collection.
