It seems a species of pig that was thought to be extinct was really just hiding out in people’s gardens. They have been rescued from the brink, and are being re-introduced to the wild in Assam, India by the Durrell foundation.

I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t mind having a herd of these on my desktop. The ones shown here are baby pigs, but the adults are tiny also.

Update!
The first batch of pygmy pigs released into the wild is thriving in the grassland wildlife sanctuary in Assam, India. Story
