phacochoerus

Check out the tusks on this Hog! The common warthog or warthog (Phacochoerus africanus) is a wild member of the pig family (Suidae) found in grassland, savanna, and woodland in sub-Saharan Africa. The common name comes from the four large, wart-like protrusions found on the head of the warthog, which serve as a fat reserve and are used for defense when males fight. - www.intothefoxden.com #thefoxden #taxidermy #osteology #naturalhistory #wildlife
