NEW-COMERS TO SEAVIEW WILDLIFE FOR 2011!

Acquiring some mini-piglets has been a plan that’s been on our minds for some time now …. so although a mini-micro pig seems to be the ‘in thing’ and quite a trendy pet to own these days, we’ve been plotting a piggy pen for a lot longer than any of the fad-driven ‘celebs’!

Mini or micro pigs are intelligent and very easy to become fond of …. they apparently out-smart both dogs and cats and are incredibly responsive. We’ve read that mini pigs can be kept in a house , or even in an apartment, but for us that would really be pushing things too far – these little guys need to display natural behaviour – rooting around outside and enjoying the fresh air, as well as having somewhere warm and dry to sleep at night. With this in mind we’re looking at converting an area in the Park for our new-comers …. so watch this space as things progress!!

Currently our little ones are only 3 weeks old and we hope to bring them to their new home at Seaview Wildlife just after Christmas. What a wonderful Christmas present for all of us at the Park – and for our visitors in 2011!

These Images were taken earlier today and show the Mother Mini-Pig with her seven piglets – aged 3 weeks. In the right hand image the three piglets with their backs to us somehow resemble miniature elephants …. we can only hope that they won’t end up quite that big!!
