Staniel Cay is famous for its swimming pigs. They hear the dinghy motor and swim right out to see what you have for them. These babies are very well fed. We learned that they prefer bread over vegetables and can get very enthusiastic about the food. One grabbed a piece of bread right out of my hand, quick as lightning.
That's one reason not to swim with them. Another reason is all the stingrays swimming around looking for leftover snacks. There are some roosters and other poultry milling about too.
We saw one climb on top of a kayak with a college-age girl paddling. Matt was very disappointed that it didn't capsize. Because he's a terrible human being. Not me, though. Nuh-uh.
