It’s a little island in the Bahamas where pigs and people swim in harmony together along the crystal clear coast. Seriously, if you haven’t heard about it, get the inside scoop HERE!
Model Irina Shayk discovered this magical place and decided to go there a few days ago, and by Monday she started posting bikini-clad pics of herself swimming with swine!!
Well, technically she only posted one photo, but she also captured a video of her mom splashing around with some giant piggies.

Pig Island is a magical island, populated by friendly, wild pigs.
Oh and it's in the Bahamas and the pigs swim around in the beautiful, clear ocean.

The pigs come in all different

Have you ever wanted to skydive but were too scared?
Well now you can see exactly what it's like thanks to this tough little camera that someone dropped out of an airplane - and all the way down to a pig pen! Where we're pretty sure it gets eaten… LOLz!
Th-th-tha th-th-tha th-th-that's all, folks! See the crazy journey captured in its entirety …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Plus, they look pretty badass… in the most ADORABLE WAY POSSIBLE!
Ten glow-in-the-dark piglets have been born this year in China, and it wasn't by accident — they are the result of an experiment at the South China Agriculture University! They've been tweaked by injecting a fluorescent protein from jellyfish DNA into the pig embryos.
The good news is that the animals were NOT hurt by the process and besides the glowin' they're normal-ass pigs!
So what's the benefits of this?? To show that foreign genetic material can be incorporated from one animal to an entirely different animal! This means CHEAPER DRUGS FOR HUMANS!
Plus it's just cool! Ha!
Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP!!!
A super cute litter of Chacoan Peccary piglets was born at San Francisco Zoo in early November.
They're not only super dooper cute, they're also endangered!
The little ones are growing and exploring their outdoor habitat, being super adorbz, leaping and running in circles, doing a behavior known as 'frisky hopping.'
They are so stupid cute we can barely handle it!
These poor animals are threatened by habitat loss and illegal hunting, though.
So glad SF Zoo is doing their part to help save these lil cuties!
Check out the video (above) to watch the adorbz guys running around!
James Cromwell is a talented actor and a huge animal rights activist.
Hell, he's even been arrested during a cat abuse protest!
He's willing to put his freedom on the line for the animals! He's so great!
James narrates a GRAPHIC video of hidden camera footage from within a pig factory farm captured by a Mercy for Animals agent.
The pigs are subjected to beatings, violent medical procedures without pain killers, mama pigs stuck in gestation crates and more awful things.
This is where Walmart gets its pork.
So many other companies and even the entire European Union don't use gestation crates, but Walmart is heartless and awful.
Check out the video (above) to see this awful cruelty, but be aware it is very GRAPHIC!
Ahhhh omg omg omg!!! Cute cute cuteeee!!
We had no idea we were so absolutely in love with cutie micro pigs!
Three micro pigs of all different cutie colors were hanging out together, getting a bath.
And that's about it.
Just three teeny, tiny piggies, hanging out in a tub together, yet it's more than enough to send our cute glands into overdrive.
The cute is pumping through our veins and we can't get enough.
This video is def going in the "watch on repeat until the end of time" pile.
Check out the video (above) to watch three micro pigs bathe as you awwwww your heart out.
