Guinea HogGuinea-Hogs-August-liter-006-300×200
The Guinea hog is a rare breed with a black coat, sturdy body, curly tail, and upright ears. These animals usually weigh less than 200 pounds. It is believed that they originated in North America from an African breed of hog, which is where the “Guinea” name comes from. You can see our Guinea hogs in the petting zoo. Our keepers call them Wilber and Piglet.
