Hi philt

Good question, but no they don’t store food, not like, for instance, mice do. Some hogs do tend to visit feeding stations multiple times per night, so that is quite normal behaviour. Maybe it was just going back to the hog house for a nap between snacks.

Having said that, in a way they do store food, but as body fat – for hibernation. Prior to hibernation they put on two types of fat they need to survive through that period.
