Why Do Pigs Love Mud Baths?
All pigs deserve to be happy and nothing (besides food) brings them greater joy than luxuriating in a mud hole.Pigs are also highly intelligent. In case you’re wondering why pigs are so drawn to bathing in the mud, here are three reasons:
- Pigs have no sweat glands, so they immerse themselves in mud baths to cool down their body temperatures.
- To prevent sunburn, pigs cover their skin with mud.
- By coating themselves with mud, pigs stay free of parasites.
A fine day at the spa!
