Four rare and unusual looking piglets have been born at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens near Great Yarmouth in Norfolk.

The Visayan Warty Pig is an endangered species and can only be found on two islands in the Philippines.

The births here are part of an international conservation programme which Thrigby Hall joined earlier this year.

"They are particularly rare.

They only come from two very small islands right in the heart of the Philippines in the area of the Sulu sea where pirates are bound.

So, tremendous human pressures and these are very rare pigs."
