If you're not into dead pigs, you don't want to look at these. Naturally.
The whole pig. From this angle, it doesn't look too different from what we're seeing with the webcam. Whole pig 1

You can see lots of bones. And the skin has dried out and thinned. Pig's shoulder

These holes are appearing in the skin on the pig's shoulder and back. I'm not sure if something's eating them, or if it's just the skin breaking down. But my money's on bugs. Holes

The back half doesn't look too different either, but you can clearly see the pig's spine now. Back half

This is what's left of the pig's face. That ear is just as perky as it was the day we put the pig out. Face

Are these iridescent green bugs just broken up parts of flies? We found them in a few spots in the cage. Green
