Pet ‘micro’ pigs have been selectively bred over many generations to produce a pet pig that is much smaller than a typical sized farm pig. Vietnamese potbelled pigs that grow to be 150-200 pounds were sent to zoos in western nations in the 1960′s and were later selectively bred for smaller scientific research. In the 1980s miniature pigs, generally weighing less than 150 pounds, were introduced into America as pets and have been bred down in size ever since. Nowadays pet pigs are even smaller.
Micro pigs are a great addition to the family costing anything from £299 to £800 they are very cost effective and a low maintenance pet to look after.
