So A WartHog Walks Into A Bar…

This is a rather unusual example of Interspecies Connections. This wild Wart Hog comes into a bar in Zimbabwe on cold nights, grabs a pillow and sleeps in front of the fire, not the least bit bothered by customers. What a clear demonstration of intelligence -“the ability to adapt to new situations (and changing environments!!) ”

Eugenie Chopin, who heads the organization for Tellington TTouch Training in South Africa, sent me this delightful photo and story from Zimbabwe.

According to Eugenie,

My friends had been visiting a game park and on the first evening while sitting in front of the fire in the bar, in walked a fully grown wart hog. He walked over to the bar, and without a word the bar man handed him a pillow. He took the pillow, put it next to the fire and promptly lay down with his head on the pillow and went to sleep. Apparently he spends the cold nights there. Then in the morning he’s off into the bush again! My friend, Cynie, says that if the barman isn’t there, he’ll grab a pillow off one of the couches! Will his next move be to demand a Hot Toddy?
