Yes this is the newest member to SNC. It's Bubba a Juliana Pig. These miniature pigs trace their ancestry back to Europe.  With selective breeding programs, these pigs have kept their smaller size. Juliana's have a very gentle disposition and love to play. Bubba is about 14 inches tall and weighs about 50 pounds. Bubba can get up to 70 lbs and has 2 more years of growing. Like all Pigs they have a Cloven Hooves. Congratulations to all those that guessed Bubba was a PIG!

Pigs Are Smart
Studies show that pigs share a number of cognitive capacities with other highly intelligent species such as dogs, chimpanzees, elephants, dolphins, and even humans. So what tricks can we teach Bubba this summer?

Maybe you will want Bubba to do some of your Homework
Summer is on the way and I'm getting pretty pumped!  I'm the kind of guy that is always looking for new experiences and people to connect with, and what better place for that, than SNC?
When I was asked for some things that make me tick, I drew a blank.  Not because there isn't anything, but because I find joy when I immerse myself in any activity. I am hard-pressed to find something I do not enjoy.  That's what gets me so excited about SNC. I will not only get to experience new things and play alot, but I'll get to share those experiences with you folks who are just as psyched to be at camp as I am! So when you see me, be sure and share with me the things that are special to you. I am sure i will find them fascinating.  I can't wait to meet all of you, See you soon,      Nick
P.S. Can't believe I take second billing to a Pig! Nice to meet you Bubba.
