How much does a miniature piglet cost?
Those cute piglets can cost between $1,200 and $6,500 a pop and can weigh a whopping 200 pounds once they mature. While they may weigh nine ounces at birth, true miniature piglets can grow to an average 65 pounds when adults not the promised maximum 25 pound weight guaranteed by some breeders.
What is the lifespan of a mini pig?
How long do mini-pigs live? Pot-bellied pigs typically live for 14-21 years, with an average of 15-18 years. To reach maximum lifespan, they must be fed a nutritionally complete diet and receive proper medical care (see handout Veterinary Care for Mini-Pigs).
What is the smallest pig you can have as a pet?
What pigs will stay small forever?
It simply does not exist. (All domesticated pigs, both those farmed for food and those kept as pets, are the same subspecies, Sus scrofa domesticus.) Breeders may use terms like these to describe the size of a pig, but adopting a teacup or dandie pig doesn’t guarantee your pet will remain small.
