Nature Blows My Mind! This small Bahamas island is full of swimming pigs (but no humans)!

And the most popular post of the week is about swimming pigs. Mike writes:

Pigs haven't exactly evolved for an aquatic lifestyle, but apparently that doesn't stop the pigs from Big Major Cay, aka Pig Beach or Pig Island, part of the Exuma Cays archipelago in the Bahamas. The island is uninhabited when it comes to humans, but wild pigs have taken over, and over time they became good swimmers.

How did they get there? Commenter Gary suggested "Any pork in a storm!"
