The Story of the World-Famous Swimming Pigs

by Todd, T.R.

"The Bahamas are famous for sun, sand - and swimming pigs." - National Geographic

In the middle of paradise, with billionaires and celebrities for neighbors, is an island populated only by swimming pigs. There was a time when these animals were largely unknown to the world, but in recent years, they've become a viral sensation. Appearing in magazines, videos, newspapers, commercials, TV shows, and countless selfies, the swimming Pigs of Exuma, in the Bahamas, have become a bucket-list sensation and have been named one of the marvels of the universe.

But how did they reach this celebrity status? What made them so famous? And why, in February 2017, did so many of them die?

Pigs of Paradise is an unlikely story of humble beginnings and a swift rise to stardom. With interviews from historians, world-renowned ecologists, famous pig owners, and boat captains, it thoughtfully considers what this phenomenon says about not only these animals but also about us.
