A trio of hogs no longer needs to worry about someone huffing and puffing and blowing their house in!

The three female pigs made their debut this month at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Queens Zoo. They're mulefoot hogs, which have single noncloven hooves that resemble those of a mule.

The domestic breed is considered critically rare by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy because they aren't commonly bred by farmers, the zoo says.
