Visayan Warty Pig

Sus cebifrons

A small forest-dwelling pig, the Visayan warty pig lives in a social group consisting of a single male (boar), several adult females (sows) and their young. Males tend to be much larger than females. The warts, or fleshy bumps, on a boar’s face are thought to protect it from sustaining a serious injury from a rival male’s tusk. Sows have litters of one to three piglets during the dry season of January through March.
