Pigs are pink animals that have flat ears, protuded snouts, and are wall-eyed.
Pigs are used to collect porkchops and can be ridden with a saddle. They drop 1-3 porkchops upon death, and can be controlled with a carrot on a stick.
Pigs will walk around aimlessly in the overworld in groups of 3-4. If there are a few blocks infront of the pig, they will jump aimlessly. They will wonder into water and swim, again aimlessly. If struck by lightning, they will turn into zombie pigmen, and will spawn without a sword. This is a rare event.
Pigs can be bred with carrots on PC or PE, or wheat on the XBox. You have to wait five minutes before breeding again, just like all passive mobs.
Pigs can be ridden by being right clicked with a saddle, and the pig is controlled by a carrot on a stick. They start slow but eventually speed up.
