"Three Little Pigs" Populate Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Savannah
Three red river hogs are the newest animals to populate the savannah at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The hotel's 33-acre savannah is home to more than 200 African animals and can be viewed by guests 24 hours a day.
Also known as African bush pigs, the hogs are indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa and are known for their unique ears. They now share a habitat on the wildlife reserve with giraffes, Ankole-Watusi cattle and ostriches.
The trio is among fewer than 100 red river hogs in the United States. Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an American Zoo and Aquarium Association accredited zoological facility and one of the deluxe resort hotels at Walt Disney World Resort.
