Odd Creatures

This past week has been full of surprising creatures. While I was looking for a student at school on Saturday to take a church a group of students asked me if I wanted to see their pig. So I said sure... Well they took me to this one pig which was rather large and I said wow that is a big pig or Kolobe in Setswana. Well they said that is the baby. They bring my to this tree and there is a pig standing there bigger than a VW Bug. It was absolutely crazy. The students love to touch my hair and skin. After every class I get ambushed. In one class one of the older boys is now my bodyguard and makes sure no one touches me and he also carries my books.
At home in the dogs water dish we found this Huge Dung beetle swimming in the water. The Dung beetle is going extinct and are not supposed to be killed. The beetle was the size of a big rat.
