Pot Belly Pigs appear in a variety of patterns in black and white, with a large snout, sharp tusks and durable hooves. Upright, triangle-shaped ears and a flat tail easily distinguish the Pot Bellied Pig from its distant pig relatives within the breed. Pot Bellied Pigs are well-known for their ravenous appetites. They are quick learners - some have even been trained to use the doggy-door or litter box- and they are surprisingly clean. Many enjoy being taken on walks using a harness and leash. Pot Bellied Pigs live an average lifespan of 4 to 15 years, growing from a mere 1/2 lb. at birth to an average of 100 to 125 lbs. by the time they reach maturity at age 3.
