Going through the shower room to get to the viewing area of the Pig Adventure, I met an escaping pig.
The first room you enter at the Pig Adventure, before you go through the shower room, has a variety of interactive screens, some in the floor. Onethat interested the kids was part of a display that illustrated the differences between how pigs used to be raised and how they are raised in the Pig Adventure. Gone are the pig sties with pigs wallowing in mud filled with their own excrement. In are clean quarters where pig poop is removed quickly and pigs stay clean and disease free.

The little pig was actually a USB flash drive with several movie clips about the Pig Adventure on it. The head pulls off and it, not the body, contains the drive. It is cute, but because of its odd shape, it takes a bit too much room--if you have USB slots that are close together, it interferes with adjacent devices. Amazon sells one that is similar.
