A 6-week-old Visayan warty pig played king of the mountain atop of an adult at the San Diego Zoo, February 6, 2006. The piglet, along with two others, was born in the season's first litter, but keepers expect at least two more litters. The Visayan warty pig is critically endangered and is found only on two islands in the Philippines. The San Diego Zoo has been successful at reproducing this species and is working with other zoos to increase the population of warty pigs. Photo by Ken Bohn/San Diego Zoo
