Artist's Description

WARTHOG – Phacochoerus aethiopicus

The warthog is a gregarious, diurnal animal that lives in abandoned aardvark holes.
It enters its hole backwards, a protective measure which enables it to make a quick escape. The male has two pairs of warts. The pair on the muzzle is absent in the female. The warthog is fond of wallowing and rubbing its mud-covered body on stumps, rocks and tree trunks. Its habit of rooting for grass rhizomes often leads to the creation of a wallow. Sight is poor although it has good scent and hearing.
When approached a warthog will often advance towards you, running off only when certain what you are.
It falls prey to lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog.
DIWET: Grass, roots, bulbs and tubers. Will eat fruit, although it favors short grass. It feeds by resting on its front knees. Requires water daily.
