    They are cute-the owner is kinda flat in personality though [​IMG] I was watching Planet Earth the other night and they has these adorable endangered Pygmy pigs on there. They are the size of a rabbit and the babies are like baby bunnies! Crazy!

    I don't know, I think my pot belly is way cuter! But I may just be bias!

    The adults don't look any smaller then the pot bellies I had as a kid. My Hilda's parents weren't quite that small, but they did have an adult female that was that small (3 years old), when I was considering a second one I was thinking I might like one out of her, she was going to be bred to a male that was white with black spots (sort of like a dalmatian). He was still fairly young, so not sure how big he'd end up. But I think for now I'll stick w/ just one.
