Pigzilla is a gigantic pig found inside Martin the Master Gardener's pen in Draynor Village. Compared to other pigs, Pigzilla is much bigger, hence why she is known as the Behemoth pig. She is the mother of the piglets in its pen, in addition to the piglet that Martin gives the player during Bringing Home the Bacon.

She seems to be a local celebrity in Draynor, having a task in the Lumbridge and Draynor Tasks named after them. Even Khnum, a former guard of Al Kharid and leader of The Skulls knows of Pigzilla. Indeed, Eli Bacon claims that the only reason Martin still keeps pigs is due to Pigzilla's celebrity status.

On one rare occasion, a sailor from the fabled Eastern Lands travelled to Port Sarim and encountered the famous pig in Draynor.[1] He was baffled and told its story back home, which lead to the Easterners performing plays wherein an actor dresses as Pigzilla, defeating various monsters and stomping on miniature buildings.
