Jason Momoa Adopting Wild Pig

The 'Aquaman' actor has taken in a wild pig he picks up on the set of his new Netflix movie 'Slumberland' and introduced his new pet to his online followers.

AceShowbiz - Jason Momoa has taken home a wild pig he met on the set of "Slumberland". After adopting the adorable animal, the 43-year-old actor joked he might bring his new pet to the premiere of the upcoming Netflix film, which is based on the comic strip "Little Nemo in Slumberland" and follows the titular character - played by Marlow Barkley - and his stuffed pig that comes to life at night.

"This is why I can't work with animals. I want to bring them home. Wild and feral like his pops," Jason wrote while sharing two videos of himself with the pig on Instagram. The Hawaiian star quipped he couldn't decide between naming the pig Lau Lau or Manapua, with both names referring to two popular dishes in his homeland.

According to the Food Network, Lau Lau is pork with butterfish wrapped in taro leaves, while Manapua are steamed beef buns. In one of the videos, the "Game of Thrones" actor says, "You want to come to the Slumberland premiere? We can paint your nails pink and put a little top hat on you."

In the background, his mother can be heard responding, "I think that'd be a little over the top since you just got him." But Jason points out, "Well, mom, I'm kind of over the top."

Jason is a well-known animal lover and, in a 2019 interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", he revealed he has a donkey, two half wolves, a ball python, and a dog. Back in September, Jason shaved off his long hair to raise awareness of the single-use plastics crisis.

He said at the time, "I'm tired of these plastics bottles. We got to stop [using] plastic forks, all that s***. It goes into our land, into our ocean." Momoa also urged people to start using reusable water bottles instead of plastic ones. He added, "It's just so sad, so please anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastic in your lives, help me."
