(Baconus Upus)

A Flying Pig

Very similar to the normal pig except for the foldable wings on either side of its body.

Habits:
Flying around and rolling in mud.

Voice:
Sounds very ‘oinking’ like but very articulate.

Habitat:
Large forests where they can search for truffles or acorns.

Food:
Truffles, acorns and a variety of other nuts.

Breeding:
The Flying Pigs usually breed in the spring, high up in trees out of sight of any spectators.

Movement and Migration:
The Flying Pig is less hairy than its more normal cousins so prefers warm weather, but not too sunny. Thus the pig will fly south to a warmer climate for the winter.

Notes:
The Flying Pig is a delicacy in some countries. With the extra exercise it does and the large wings they have a very tender pork flavour. Catching one can be quite a task so they are a sought after and expensive dish. So the price of some bacon really has gone up.
