This is Pricilla. We met her when we visited Balboa Park on our trip to San Diego in September. She was with her human parents who were having a picnic nearby with a couple of other friends. Priscilla decided to take a walk and was munching on the grass when we came across her. She had attracted quite a crowd. After a while her family thought it was time to retrieve her. She took her own sweet time. I have an idea that Priscilla was a little stubborn as she ignored them at first. Eventually - only when she was ready - she ambled her way back, but only after being tempted by a tasty morsel this young lady offered her.
A full-grown Vietnamese potbellied pig can weigh between 100 to 250 pounds but are considered miniature compared to their cousin, the farm hog, whose weight can exceed a thousand pounds.
We have only had this type of pig in the US since 1985 and are still in the learning stage. It is thought that they live between 10 to 15 years of age. The average, full-grown pot-bellied pig can reach in height anywhere from 16 to 24 inches from its shoulders.
