The Swimming Pigs of the Bahamas

Big Major Cay is an uninhabited island in the Bahamas that is home to a colony of feral pigs. No one knows for sure how they came to be on the island, but there are several possible theories. The pigs may be feral, but they aren't exactly wild. They love tourists, because tourists bring good things to eat!

Yet these pigs are clever. They have calculated which time the boats are most likely to arrive at the island and await them patiently on the beach each day.  After all, they can always catch a few rays while they are waiting.
