Your cute little baby piglet won’t stay small forever. Even the little pot-bellied piglets can weigh between 100 and 200 pounds when fully grown.

Names for Pink Piglets

There are many different breeds of pig, both wild and domesticated. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors…even though pink is most closely associated with pigs, especially baby piglets.
Scientists say that most pigs are brown or black and not pink at all. Only a few types of domestic pig are pink. Why is that?

Dark color helps a pig stay safe and camouflaged in the wild. A light-colored wild pig will not survive as well as a dark one. But a domestic pig on a farm can be white or pink and stay safe and protected.
Your pig may or may not be pink, but because pink is such a classic piglet color, here are a few names for pink piglets.
