Hog Genius

Hog Genius
Cement-breaking snouts, shape-shifting skulls, and video-gaming skills - after watching Hog Genius, you'll never think of pigs as simple swine again. Their smarts rival those of dogs and they thrive in backwoods, barnyards, and even laboratories, where mastering a video game earns food. As scientists are discovering, they have the bodies to back up their brains: their skulls can morph to make foraging for food easy and they detect smells better than bloodhounds.
