This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

A Welsh pig loiters like one of the guys outside a farming exhibit at St. Fagan National History Museum, near Cardiff, Wales. Bred for a specific body shape that provides optimal cuts of meat, these pigs are also prized for their hardy but gentle natures, which make them well-suited to living around humans.
