It’s the Year of the Pig. To be precise: it’s the Year of the Earth Pig. The last animal in the chinese zodiac, which is a 12 year cycle, beginning with the rat.
My first idea about “earth pig” was a wart hog. Here it is – a large wart hog! I photographed it at Zoo Magdeburg/Germany in 2009. I was very excited, because it was the first time I saw a living wart hog, besides on TV or in a museum as taxidermy.
