Swimming pigs live it up in the Bahamas

On the beaches of Big Major Spot Island, the Bahamas, a family of brown and pink boars and piglets live freely on the sandy white beaches and swim in the tropical surf

Underwater photographer Eric Cheng stumbled across the unusual residents during a diving expedition to the area.

We were in the southern Bahamas to photograph oceanic white-tip sharks. Our captain, Jim Abernethy, had heard that there were pigs on Big Major so we decided to go and check it out.

I'm not sure how these domestic pigs (gone feral) came to live on this particular beach in the Bahamas, but they are well-known to locals, who have been feeding them for years.

Because locals bring food, the pigs will run into the water and actually swim out to the oncoming boats, as if to greet them individually

Upon approaching the white sandy beach, it is easy to spot the pigs - both pink and dark brown - laying in the sand.
