Spotted swine

Spotted swine

Spotted swine, breed that is predominantly black with many white spots. Except for its additional white coloring, it is much like the Poland China swine, which together with Gloucester Old Spot hogs forms the foundation stock of Spotted swine.

The Spotted-winged Fruit Bat, Balionycteris maculata is the smallest fruit bat in the world. It is found from southern Thailand, across Malaysia, and on Borneo. It lives in the forests where it roosts in small groups in trees and caves. Its name comes from the coloration of its wings, which are dark with a lighter-colored spot at each joint.
