 The six Lina Sisters are Hanford Pigs, they arrived in October 2013 and were one year old. They were used in Pharmacokinetics (PK) research. They are affectionately known as Javelina, Rascalina, Rumblelina, Vandelina, Babelina and Greedylina.

Hanford labs started creating their own breed of pig for laboratory use in 1958. One of the breeds they used was a wild swamp pig from Louisiana.

They are very athletic pigs with loads of energy to play!
