This beach bum. What a pig!

This is one of the swimming pigs that live on Big Major Cay, one of 365 islands in the Exumas, Bahamas. These pigs greet oncoming motorboats with boisterous squeals as they rush in from the beach into the crystal clear turquoise water. They float and paddle alongside the boats, begging for food. Once the food runs out, they swim back to the beach to doze off in the sand until their next visitors arrive.
Location: Big Major Cay, Exuma, Bahamas
