Digging for breakfast: It’s a hog thing

A few times a month in the Giants of the Savanna habitat, you’ll see our four resident hogs with their bottoms up in the air, tails wagging as they shovel dirt with their tusks and noses.

Hank and Riley, our red river hogs, and Marge and Akoko, our warthogs, dig deep searching for their breakfast.
