Hoglet Family Update

– The little hoglet is growing quickly and is bonding with his family. He seems to like picking up sticks and pieces of produce, jumping over logs, climbing onto his family members, getting ‘zoomies,’ and rooting in the mud. We haven’t yet confirmed the sex of the baby because it and mom have been doing so well that we haven’t needed to examine it up-close.
– Mom, Zena, is protective and patient as her spunky little one zooms through the yard, jumps over logs, wallows and joins in the family cuddle puddles.
– Huey, an active and engaged dad, is already showing the little hoglet how to wallow and use his snout to root around the yard.
– First-time big sister, Pinto, is getting more and more comfortable with this inquisitive little one who likes to walk underneath her and make mud wallows near her.
