Pig coloring pages

Children’s coloring pages of pigs, the best that you could find anywhere, also read the post until the end and you will find many interesting facts about pigs and their habits.

A selection of the most interesting facts about pigs you might not know. Let’s start with the most common myth. Further more. You will not believe)

  1. In fact, pigs are clean The opinion that pigs are dirty animals is a complete delusion. Contrary to popular belief, they do not defecate where they eat and sleep (if the area allows), which cannot be said about people who, figuratively, and sometimes in the most literal sense, shit where they live and work. Suffice it to recall the individual elevators and entrances. Bathing in the mud is a hygiene procedure. This is how the pig gets rid of skin parasites, like many other animals, which, by the way, we do not consider dirty. But parasites are not the only reason why a pig “bathes in the mud.”
  2. Pigs do not sweat We can say “chomps like a pig”, but no one says “sweaty like a pig.” The point is, pigs don’t sweat. Pigs have very few sweat glands. The pig’s body cannot be cooled by sweating, like the human body. A domestic pig, of course, would climb into clean water, but no one is happy with swimming pools. Therefore, when these animals become especially hot, they climb again … into the liquid mud. So they manage to wait out the midday heat.
  3. The pig saves human lives. It is known that high-quality leather goods are made from pig skins, and paint brushes are made from bristles. But the fact that pigs’ gastric juice is used in the manufacture of insulin is not known to many. In terms of blood composition, the structure of the gastrointestinal tract and some other physiological characteristics, pigs are close to humans. Closer, perhaps, only monkeys. That is why donor material taken from pigs is used in transplantation. Even breast milk from women and sows has a similar amino acid composition. And many diseases of suckling pigs are similar to those of infants. Even Muslim religious theorists have allowed the transplantation of pig organs to people of Muslim faith, despite the fact that they are strictly prohibited from eating pigs.
  4. By the way, why do some religions prohibit eating pork? Let’s make a reservation right away that the following versions about religious prohibitions are given solely from an informational point of view, as existing ones, and in no way carry the purpose of offending the feelings of believers! So, the most common reason is considered the nomadic way of life of the tribes, and, as you know, the pig is a rather large and heavy animal, so there was a problem in transportation over long distances. There is another opinion that it is due to the lack of water. Pigs, which, as we recall, cannot cool themselves on their own, require a lot of water, and in the arid regions of the Middle East, this is a decisive factor. In addition, there was a significant problem with storing large pieces of pork meat in hot climates. There is another version: according to legend, when God’s grace descended, the pig lay on one side in the mud. And since it is not known which one, it is better not to risk it at all.
  5. And, by the way, the pig has a moderate appetite. Judge for yourself: a pig weighing 90 kg. eats an average of 3.6 kg per day. feed, i.e. 4% of its weight. A pelican weighing 8 kg. daily absorbs about 25% of its mass, although it may be more. If the pig were so gluttonous, it would have to be given 22.6 kg of feed per day. This confirms that the larger the animal, the less it eats. So, for example, an elephant needs to feed various products as much as 2% of its mass, and a penguin – 10%, that is, five times more.
  6. Who said that pigs are stupid and uncommunicative? In their intelligence, these animals are second only to man, dolphin and monkey. Studies have shown that pigs are much smarter than dogs, and even better than some primates in video games with a joystick and a piglet. Danish designers came up with an idea for a game called Pig Chase in the spirit of European legislation requiring pig breeders to provide children with toys, such as plastic balls hanging from a chain attached to a wall, to discourage boredom and aggression among pigs. One farm worker came up with an idea that blurred the social boundaries between humans and animals. “… Let’s give them what our children play; let them have their own game console, ”she said. The photo below shows a pig nudging at a human-controlled light signal on an interactive touchscreen in Pig Chase. Klemen Driessen, an applied philosophy specialist at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, after talking with farmers decided to create something more interesting. He was inspired by the enthusiasm of the pig breeders, as well as the curiosity of the pigs touching the lights with their noses. Pigs can also play on the large touchscreen display on the wall of the pen. A human-controlled light signal on the wall will make the animals want to touch it with their snouts.
