Pygmy Hog Box

Regular price $45.00 $36.00 Sale

This sassy Pygymy Hog will be glad to watch over your favorite collection of wild adventure souvenirs. Shells? Rocks? Dried grasses? She's got it covered.

Made in India (for Spencer Gifts, the quirky and controversial shop known to kids of 80s mall culture). Approximate measurements: just shy of 2.5" and exactly 1" tall inside. 

Extremely rare and endangered, the Pygmy Hog (Porcula salvanialives in one tiny area at the border of India and Bhutan. Habitat loss is their primary threat, as the tall wetland grass they rely on disappears for agricultural use. The Pygmy Hog Conservation Programme is working on community outreach and reintroduction efforts to save this special creature from teetering over the edge into extinction.

Feather & Foxglove donates a portion of profits to environmental conservation and animal welfare agencies.
