These adorable potbellied pigs —which is any of a breed of small pigs originating in southeastern Asia and having a straight tail, potbelly, swayback, and black, white, or black and white coat—were taken in from rescue organizations and became part of the park’s Pets Rule! family.

These graceful acrobats combine agility with gymnastics in a mesmerizing, 25-minute show in the park’s Mission Bay Theater.
