Exotic Pigs: Zoo’s newest couple now on exhibit

Riverbanks Zoo and Garden is now home to a female babirusa—a rare, tusked animal native of Indonesia and the second of its kind at the Zoo since the addition of a male pig named Bertello in February of 2011.

Wilma, a 2 ½ year old swine, came to Riverbanks in February from the St. Louis Zoo based on the breeding recommendations of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Babirusa Species Survival Plan.
