Fish aren't the only creatures that like spending time in the water: From the bovines of the Bahamas' Pig Beach and the water-loving Turkish Van cat to swimming orangutans, see more mammals unexpectedly jumping into oceans, rivers, lakes, and pools for a dip.


On the beaches of the Bahamas' Exuma Cays, a group of water-loving swine has earned one shore the nickname Pig Beach.

According to The Telegraph, the group of brown and pink pigs are a domestic species that's now feral, after years of living on the beach -- and while they enjoy lounging on the white sand beaches (who doesn't?), they're also known to run into the water and swim to boats when locals drop food overboard.
