The words pig, hog and swine are all generic terms without regard to gender, size or breed.

A male pig is called a boar

A female pig is called gilt if she hasn't had piglets yet and a sow if she has.

Pigs originated from Eurasian Wild boars.

Pigs are very intelligent and learn quickly. They pick up tricks faster than dogs. Pig’s rank in animal intelligence behind chimpanzees, dolphins and elephants. Piglets learn their names by two to three weeks of age and respond when called.

Pigs are very social animals. They form close bonds with each other and other species. Pigs enjoy close contact and will lie close together when resting. Pigs use their grunts to communicate with each other.
Domestic pigs are rarely aggressive. The only exceptions are sows with a young litter and boars if provoked. Pigs are much more tolerant of cold than heat. Pigs have no sweat glands, so they can't sweat. They roll around in the mud to cool their skin. The layer of dried mud protects their skin from the sun. If available, pigs, who are great swimmers, prefer water to mud. Some pigs have straight and some have curly tails. Pigs have a great sense of smell. Their powerful but sensitive snout is a highly developed sense organ. Pigs also have a great field of vision, because their eyes are on the sides of their heads.
