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.

During the breeding season, the tuft of hair on the boar’s head grows into an impressive head-to-tail mane.
