Domestic pigs, also referred to as swine or hogs, are stocky bodied hoofed animals that have developed for farming purposes as a subspecies of the wild boar. Raised around the world to provide valuable products for humans, domestic pigs are bred to be much larger than their ancestors in order to produce higher yields of meat (pork), lard, leather, glue, fertilizer, and samples for medical research. Naturally intelligent and social, domestic pigs are among the smartest of all domesticated animals and are often credited as being smarter than dogs.
