Well done on that vid. I have to admit, I didn't think I was going to be impressed. However, you proved me wrong with this vid. I think the work they are doing is great.

This vid also backs up what I have been saying for years about hogs breeding, nesting, and laying eggs. That is that hogs well under 200 grams breed and lay eggs without issue and can do so in captivity provided they have the proper options. And when they nest, it is not normal to see them pacing the cage hours before they lay in a glad container half filled with sphagnum moss. In captivity, it is very important to offer deep nesting using a substrate that is as close to natural as possible. When you offer this nesting option, they do exactly what the lady in the vid described. They stay stationary once they find their nesting spot and go down days before they lay. No pacing or frantic movement.

Again, great job on this one Dan.
