Description:
We often consider dogs to be our enduring sidekicks, but the truth is that domestic pigs have played a role in our lives for nearly as long. Pigs are highly social and super smart. They like to play. They have good long-term memories. They can tell which people are nice to them and which aren't. They sing to their young when they nurse them. They're inventive and crafty and belligerent - and incredibly single minded. If they want something, they'll get it. In fact, we have far more in common with these creatures than we may like to admit - although maybe some more than others. Shining a light on the simple genius of pigs, this book will explore everything from evolution and behaviour to intelligence and communication; the wonder of a pig's nose to porcine relationships, friendships and feuds.
