Q. What is the general life expectancy of micro pigmy pigs? Also, What are the general price ranges for them?
A. By the wording of your question, I take am "assuming" that you mean the miniature potbellied pig.
They can cost up to $5000 and generally live between 12 and 15 years.
Please see the following web site for further information about miniature potbellied pigs.
