It is impossible for them to fly, but in The Exumas, they can swim! Just north of Staniel Cay on an island of their own called Big Major's Cay, live a drove of pigs.  Initially, residents relocated these animals to Big Major's Cay in anticipation of a major down-turn in the economy during the Gulf War.  When unsuspecting visitors stopped by to snorkel or swim at Big Major's Cay, they were greeted by a welcoming drove of pigs.  As they fed these harmless, sociable creatures, it became a habit for them to come out of the coppice at the sound of a motor with the anticipation of getting some food
