Jason Momoa showed off his newest pet – an adorable black pig – in a recent Instagram video.

In the first video clip, the Aquaman star cuddles with the small pig, and reveals that he is thinking of naming the animal either Lau Lau or Manapua, two popular Hawaiian foods that often contain pork. “This is why I cannot work with animals I want to bring them home,” Momoa captioned the video.

The actor appears to have adopted the pig after filming the upcoming Netflix film Slumberland which follows a young girl with a stuffed pig that comes alive after dark. Momoa reportedly plays a “magical” character in the film who helps the young girl reunite with her deceased father through dreams.

In a subsequent video clip, the Game of Thrones actor asks the pig if he’d like to accompany Momoa to the upcoming premiere of Slumberland.

“We can paint your nails pink and put a little top hat on you,” he tells the animal.

Off-camera, Momoa’s mother cuts in, telling her son: “I think that’d be a little over the top since you just got him.”

“Well, mom, I’m kind of over the top,” Momoa replies, without missing a beat.

The Game of Thrones alum is a well-known animal lover; he previously revealed during a 2019 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he shares a donkey, two “half-wolves,” a ball python, and a dog with actor and ex-wife Lisa Bonet.
