Daktari Bush School and Wildlife Orphanage

The third variety is clearly superior. It's science.

These two fuzzy members of the Daktari Bush School and Wildlife Orphanage family might be worlds apart in the species department, but they don't care about any of that garbage. Piggy and Nikita (I'll let you guess who's who) met after a woman found the former nugget in a drain with two of his siblings. The mother was nowhere in sight during her first encounter with the piglets, and when she visited them again, she knew that their mom was never coming back.

That's when the kind folks from Daktari went and picked the warthogs up. Sadly, two of the babies died, but Piggy held on.
