It is said that the animals are dirty, because they like to wallow in mud. In fact, they simply make themselves a cooling mudpack in hot weather, just as elephants do. In addition, the mud protects against insect bites. Some people even keep pigs as pets - because they are very peaceful, sensitive, social, curious and intelligent.
Pigs are more intelligent than dogs.
