More Florida Fauna

It’s been a long time since we’ve posted about bugs or alligators or other wildlife. So here’s a new one for you.


Yes, pigs. Wild pigs. It was my turn to drive the preschool carpool yesterday, and right at the corner of the school/church driveway and the road there was a group (herd? bevy? sty?) of 3 wild pigs grazing calmly. They looked a lot like this. I can’t remember now if it was two brown ones and one black, or the other way around.

These were no hogzillas. They were about the size of a spaniel, I’d say. Quite furry, and almost cute. When I pointed them out to the kids, Madeline shouted, “But pigs are SUPPOSED to be PINK!”
