Three Little Piggies on Exhibit

Lauren Kraft, Public Relations Coordinator

A first in the Sacramento Zoo’s 83-year history, the Zoo welcomed three newborn Red river hogs on the morning of July 16, 2010. Now a little over one-week old they are out exploring the exhibit with their mom and dad.

“As a first time mom, Daisy has gone above our expectations giving excellent care for the piglets,” said Lindsey Moseanko. “All three youngsters are showing their different personality traits. Jovian is very sociable; Flint, the runt, is a momma’s boy; and Chloe is very quick on her toes,” Moseanko said.

Come out and catch a glimpse of the three little piggies on exhibit with their mom!


  1. That is fantastic. I thought it was awesome when the zoo got the red river hogs but this makes it that much cooler.

  2. They are too cute! I cannot wait to drag my nearly three year old down to see them. He's absolutely nuts about baby pigs. :)
