The pig is a common farm animal. Pigs are relatively easy to keep and are highly intelligent, and they are used to make a number of food products, such as bacon and pork chops. It is an ambient animal in Carnivores Ice Age and Carnivores: Ice Age.
In Carnivores Ice Age, pigs are ambient animals that roam about, eat, and run when frightened. Like the case between Gallimimus and Velociraptor, the pig could be mistaken for the wild boar, but not as easily as the aforementioned animals. It is easier to tell them apart at a distance due to the major difference in size and skin color. Under certain circumstances, it can also be mistaken for a wolf or Smilodon.
- The pig, housefly, and Feral Rock Pigeon and are the only animals in the Carnivores series that aren't extinct on Earth.
- The pig and wild boar use recolored versions of the same texture; because of this, the pig has an unused tusk texture.
- The unused Poacher model has the same animation order as the pig, making it perfectly swappable with the pig's model.
- For information regarding its role in the Plutyrian Cycle, see Pig.
