Tonga pigs fish for feed
Travellers to the Pacific islands of Tonga have been
amazed to find pigs fishing around.
These animals tried to search for crabs, mussels, sea weed and fish during
low tide. Generally speaking, the piglets stay close to the coastline but grown
pigs are seen fishing with water floating as high as their shoulders.
It is thought that the herd are descending from the animals the seaman
James Cook took on his journey around the year 1770.
Some of them are even supposed to be able to stay under the water surface
for a couple of minutes.
