All About Kune Kunes
Apart from our diet something else we love to do is lie in a lovely cool mud pool. All pigs love to do this, its not because we like to be dirty. In fact pigs are very clean animals, they can even be trained to use a litter tray just like a cat. I am a very clean boy, I sleep in my pen all night in the barn, and wait until the morning to be let outside until I go to the toilet, I don't like going in my bed! Now did you know that pigs don't sweat? This is why we like to lie in the mud, because we don't sweat we don't have a way to keep ourselves cool, so instead we lie in the mud which keeps us cool and the mud also protects our skin from getting sunburn, just like a sunblock!
Here is a pic of my mud pool, I LOVE IT!!
The Education Team is fostering some kittens at the moment, they are very cute. This is so they will be ready to play with the kids at the 'Auckland SPCA School Holiday Experience', cat day. If you still would like to book a place click here.
