Bush PigA short-bodied pig with a rounded back, a long, massive head, long dazzled ears and a coarse dark brown to black coat with a long spinal crest. Males have projecting bony ridges and calluses on their muzzle. They are common to wooded habitats, swamps and marshes, forming families or harems with one boar and one to four sows plus their offspring. Being mainly nocturnal, but also active by daylight when they’re not hunted, they are omnivorous, feeding mainly on roots, bulbs and fallen fruits.
