Question
I have a two year old pig. I recently noticed his scrotum seems to be very large. what would be a normal size, it is about the size of a elongated grapefruit.          thank you.

Answer
Mini pigs reach sexual maturity at a very young age, and emotional adulthood at about age 2. Their scrotumes can be quite large and long.

If it looks like it's grown quite a bit in the last few weeks, or he acts like the area hurts or is uncomfortable, if it looks red or raw or lumpy, or if one side is bigger than the other, chances are there is a problem and piggy will need to see a vet.

Size alone should not be an issue as long as piggy is not having any peeing problems. If piggy shows signs of straining to pee he will need to see a vet.
