Pot-belled pigs have distinctive pointed ears unlike our other pigs.

Among our November arrivals was Princess, the Vietnamese Pot-Bellied Pig. Upon arrival, we housed her in temporary accommodation in Pets Corner. While a comfortable place for her to get used to life at Mudchute, it was not the ideal enclosure for a pig; and the farm team have been hard at work to develop a more suitable enclosure for her.

You can now find Princess in her new home beside the barn and adjoining Pheasant Crescent. Princess’ new enclosure gives her the comforts of a sheltered indoor area as well as hard standing and access to bare soil to root and wallow (an activity she enjoys now and will continue to take advantage of as the weather warms!). As we continue to add the finishing touches to Pets Corner area, we look forward to welcoming more animals to their new enclosures soon.
