Baby pigs often sleep in barns. They are active during the day. They use their snouts to root. They dig in the dirt. They look for food. Baby pigs also root to cool off. The dug-up dirt is cooler than the dirt on the surface. The cool dirt feels good on a hot day.

Not all pigs are pink. They can be brown, black, white or gray. Piglets come in many shapes and sizes. Some have stripes. Others are spotted. Each piglet is unique. Its colors help farmers tell that pig apart from all the others.
