Video: Chester Zoo welcomes rare warty piglet


Keepers at Chester Zoo are celebrating after Chester the birth of a rare Visayan warty piglet Only 200 Visayan warty pigs are thought to be left in their native habitat in the Philippines, making them the rarest of all wild pigs. Chester Zoo was the first in the UK to welcome the warty pigs, a species that gets its name from three pairs of fleshy warts on the boar's face. The warts protect them from rival pigs' tusks during a fight.
