He stands with his left foot forward. I do to. Where is his Boar Leash? If he loses his Boar, someone can get hurt.

Why is the monkey sharing a cage with the pig? Not an expert on animal husbandry but this just seems so random. Or is the monkey wild and can jump in and out of the enclosure?

Stop animal slavery!

Concrete walls and concrete floor. Not natural and not amusing at all. Animals is zoo's for shallow peoples entertainment demonstrates humans lack of empathy towards our fellow earthlings....

I believe the male in this mixed animal couple is more loving, patient, supportive, trustworthy and gentlemanlike than human male.

If you monkey around too much, you'll get boared.

I just feel sorry for them. If the rest of their enclosure looks like this I can understand that they want to escape.
