    This episode felt more chaotic than normal. Felt less like a nature documentary and more like "holy shit, pigs"

    Love all the True Facts!

    If school had documentaries like this then everyone would be smart.

    I know it’s unlikely you’ll ever see this, but I want to thank you Ze for making content like this during the last few really tumultuous years. I think I speak for everyone struggling - that a little bright spot like this series is so important in our lives so thank you

    I don't know if Jerry is real, but if he is give him a raise.

    My wife has wanted a "mini-pig" for years. We finally got one. They really are super smart. Probably the smartest animal I've ever had. They also do not stay "mini" for very long.😂

    A funny thing about truffle hogs is that unlike trained dogs, they search for truffles mainly to eat them. So if you have one "helping" you, you need to be fast with your fingers to keep it from eating the truffle once it has found it. However, I remember reading sometimes you have to let them eat some of it or have a treat prepared, because otherwise they stop digging for them if you're around.

    You know, not gonna lie. When he was saying that part on the “what could possibly go wrong”, I was waiting to see a quick pic of bacon being cooked on the stove.

    I would give both of my kidneys just to see Zefrank start ashow again. This dude has been my hero for like a decade and has helped me through some really tough problems. His input has changed my life for the better and I would love to see more content or to be able to know that he's impacting more people like me still.

    Ze Frank's facts are the only channels where facts are derailed so far, I'm actually learning 3 completely different subjects in one video. In this video, I learned different kinds of pigs, the basic component of a truffle and how GRRM got his GoT inspiration from.

    I was lucky enough to go on a tour of southern Africa once, and a warthog happened to be on the premises of our lodge at the time, just grazing. Well, a girl on the trip tries to get a selfie with it, but gets a wee bit too close. The warthog throws its head up, knocking her phone out of her hand and coming

    In the book Papillon, the main character escapes to an island and quickly finds out that it is all swampy. He ends up running into a guy hiding out there and this guy has a pig to help him find his way through the swamp so they dont get caught in any quicksand. It's a true story, Them piggies are super smart, and they taste good too. 🐖🥓👍

    One of my greatest hopes is that one day Zefrank does a video on Hyenas, and includes details about their birthing process.
