35 Fantastic Photographs Of Pigs That You Need In Your Life

Last Updated on by

Pigs are awesome. They are super smart, extremely social and communicate with each other constantly. Winston Churchill is supposed to have said “I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals” – and you definitely know you are something if you've got a quote from Churchill. 

While you are enjoying this wonderful gallery dedicated to pigs, you'll see that many of the images are portraits! So when thinking about a portrait of your pig (or other animal friends), it is always the eyes that need to be in sharp focus and make sure you get “up, close and personal” for some compelling portraits.
