THIS LITTLE PIGGY: A six-week-old red river hog piglet prepares to be fed by Amy Usewicz, an animal keeper at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The red river hog is an African species known for its shaggy red fur and long ears, and grows to weigh 120-180 pounds at maturity. There are approximately 80 red river hogs in the United States, with eight of those at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. The red river hogs can be seen by resort guests on the 33-acre savannah that nearly encircles the Walt Disney World hotel. (Gene Duncan, photographer) 0509AU_2140GD
