Pint-sized piggies

Young mini-pigs wrestle inside their enclosure on Aug. 13 at the Hanover Zoo in Germany. The zoo welcomed 10 new adorable mini-pigs when mother Marianne gave birth on July 20.

These highly intelligent, pint-sized hogs can be house-trained and because they do not shed, they make excellent pets for people who suffer from allergies.
