Lucky Pig

This Meishan pig is one of a family of pigs, living in the Teirpark zoo, Berlin, presented as the good luck pig family for Germany for 2008 (the pig is a good luck symbol in Germany).

This Chinese pig doesn't know how lucky he is (never mind the Germans). These swine are bred because they taste extra good. But I doubt this pig family is due for the butcher's shop any time soon (in '08 at least).
