Summary
Prolific, ubiquitous, smart, adaptable, able to turn garbage into good-quality protein just by eating it, pigs have been our companions since neolithic days when they obligingly domesticated themselves, coming in out if the wild to truffle around our waste pits. It's not all about the bacon: the resourceful pig, now reformatted in micro packages, has developed a whole new career as a portable pet. And thanks to the recent genome mapping we now know that pig physiology is remarkably similar to our own. This book covers the pig's evolution from prehistoric 'hell pig' to placid porker; anatomy, biology, and behaviour; the pig's contribution to our lives; and the high profile of this remarkable beast in popular culture
