  • I thought about that, too, but the idea that pig farmers based their calls on their charges' taxonomic group seemed a little far-fetched...

  • And now that I think about it a bit more, the idea that the pigs would respond is even stranger.

    November 1, 2007

  • They might respond if they thought the farmer was sui generous...

  • It appears to be spelled Suidae, but I can't find an etymology.

    November 1, 2007

  • Suidae is the family, Suoidea is the superfamily. They come from Latin "sus" (pig) with the standard endings -idae and -oidea.
