Domestic pig


Domestic pig (Sus scrofa f. dom.)

Tibetan pigs

In fact the so-called Tibetan pigs that live in the Tibetan village of Görlitz zoo do not actually exist. In order to recreate the appearance of the doemstic pigs living in Tibet attempts were made to cross the European wild boar and the Meishan pig. The result is impressive: almost real Tibetan pigs.
