Wild boar (Sus scrofa)

Wild boars roam the oak forests and shrublands of Europe, Asia and North Africa. These large, bristly-haired pigs are the ancestors of our farmyard pigs which have been domesticated for thousands of years. Their four, continually growing tusks are kept nice and sharp for fighting off other males during the breeding season, or when backed into a corner by a large predator. Injuries inflicted can be severe, especially after a powerful charge. Wallowing in mud and water helps to protect the wild boar against sunburn and biting insects.
