Large barrels of energy with tusks and white manes, these territorial animals patrol their ranges, rooting out food from fruit to the chicks of ground-nesting birds as they go (they’re also partial to carrion). They are ‘extremely important’ forest seed distributors.
Females are reported to build ‘nests’ somewhat like mini-haystacks to farrow in. They are secretive, but can be aggressive. Piglets are cared for by the dominant boar.
