  • Pygmy goats are excellent climbers! They have a patch of hair between their toes to give them extra climbing traction!
  • There are over 250 breeds of domestic chickens, but none of them are capable of long distance flight.
  • Pot-bellied pigs have an unbelievable sense of smell. They can smell food items up to 10 inches below the ground and use their tough snout to dig up foods like bulbs, roots, insects and seeds.
  • Pygmy goats usually give birth to twins!
  • Pigs don’t sweat, which is one reason they need to cool off in water and mud wallows. - See more at: http://animals.sandiegozoo.org/animals/wild-swine-pigs-hogs#sthash.ztPOGbnz.dpuf
    Pigs cannot sweat! Which is why you will see them wallowing in puddles and mud holes to cool off.
  • Llamas are closely related to camels! Although they don't have a hump like a camel, their feet have two padded toes just like a camel's.
