Wild Pig

Wild Pig (Sus scrofa)


The wild Pig is also known as the wild Boar or wild swine. The wild boar is a bulky, massively built suid with short and relatively thin legs. The trunk is short and robust and neck is short. A 50 kg (110 lb) boar needs around 4,000–4,500 calories of food per day, though this required amount increases during winter. The wild boar can consume numerous genera of poisonous plants without ill effect. The wild boar is a highly versatile omnivore, whose diversity in choice of food is comparable to that of humans.
