Pig

A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa), along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the babirusaand the warthog. Pigs, like all suids, are native to the Eurasian and African continents. Juvenile pigs are known as piglets.Pigs are omnivores and are highly social and intelligent animals.

The pig looks like a massive animal, from the massive body, stocky, covered with hair (bristles) and a small curly tail. Suffice it to say that the pig fattening exceeds the 150kg, has a short neck and legs equally short and slender fingers ending in 4 unghiute. The muzzle is typically piggish, with nose to the disc, crushed (griffin) and totally hairless; the eyes of the pig are very small while the ears appear large and drooping forward. The pig does not have a good view but on the other hand uses a hearing and sense of smell superfine; the mouth is very powerful and equipped with sharp teeth, sharp canines and molars particularly robust. The pig is omnivorous and is able to track down, bulbs, tubers and truffles from under the ground; not surprisingly, this animal (if trained) has been successfully used in the search for truffles.
The pig loves (and needs) wallowing in the mud with which it protects against parasites.
The pig is played twice a year, in spring and autumn, respectively, with a gestation of 15 weeks leading to the emergence of 4-10 piglets (piglets), which wean at 3 months with a weight of about 25kg.

Despite the similarities and the negative meanings assigned to today, pig represented (in almost all cultures) a determining factor for the survival of man. The first graffiti appearing pig farms date back to 40,000 BC
In fact, Greek mythology mentions that Maia (May, as well as pork) was one of the seven Pleiades or lesser gods, while the Romans soventemente offered a sacrifice of pigs (and other animals) to the gods, hoping for their benevolence. Unfortunately, at the same time svanimento of republican virtues of Rome, the advent of professional armies and slavery to employment working in the countryside, the pig lost all prestige and, although the Christian religion he redeemed the Jewish and Muslim taboos, I joined anyway significance negative: lust. Among other things, readers will be more prepared for the topic already aware of the episode of Jerash; according to the scriptures (and even before the advent of the Mosaic law and Mohammedan), Jordan (Jerash), Jesus exorcised some demons that infested the bodies of Christians and confined them within a few pigs in the pasture (which ended early suicide in the lake below).
