Mangalica Pig



Angelica is our Mangalica Pig

The Mangalica (also Mangalitsa or Mangalitza) is a Hungarian breed of domestic pig. It was developed in the mid-19th century by crossbreeding Hungarian breeds from Nagyszalonta and Bakony with the European wild boar and the Serbian Šumadija breed. The Mangalica pig grows a thick, curly coat of hair. The only other pig breed noted for having a long coat is the extinct Lincolnshire Curly Coat pig of England.

Angelica is a really gentle natured pig, she has a lovely curly coat in the winter which she loses in the summer, although she is super friendly the students do not go into the pig pens due to their size, but Angelica likes a good scratch and when she sees people she becomes very vocal talking in her own way.
