dc.descriptionScientific Classification: Kingdom: Animalia; Phylum: Chordata; Class: Mammalia; Order: Artiodactyla; Family: Suidae; Genus: Sus; Genus species: Sus scrofa.
dc.descriptionAnimal characteristics: Head-Body Length: 90-180 cm; Height: 60 cm; Weight: 50-200 kg; Identification: The wild boar is grayish brown in color with gray bristles and no facial warts. Their tails are straight, not curled like domestic pigs. The male has four tusks, two come from the upper jaw and two even larger ones come out from the bottom jaw; Habitat: Woodlands, grasslands, forests, thickets; Diet: Omnivore: fungi, ferns, grass, leaves, roots, bulbs, fruit, insect larvae, small vertebrates, earthworms; Reproduction: Mating season varies with the climate in which a population lives. In Europe, wild boars mate in the winter. After gestating for 115 days, females give birth to ten young in the spring or early summer; Social Structure: Foraging is done in family groups containing up to 20 members. Females live in matriarchal sounders, and males are in bachelor groups; Behavior: Wild boars are most active during the night and in the morning. Only dominant males are allowed to mate; Status: No special status; Interesting Facts: When cornered, the wild boar is tenacious and will attack humans, dogs, horses, and even tigers without hesitation. All wild boar piglets are dark brown with pale longitudinal stripes. After three to four months, these stripes disappear completely. These stripes are dormant in the domestic pig and reappear in the young after a few generations, becoming feral.
