Artist's Description

Two Red River Hogs doing what hogs do naturally …………sleeping!!

The Red River Hog (Potamochoerus porcus), also known as Bush Pig (but not to be confused with P. larvatus, common name “Bushpig”), is a wild member of the pig family that lives in the rainforests, mountains and brushes of Africa.

Adults weigh up to 200 lb and stand 0.6-0.75 m. The fur is reddish-brown, with black legs and black and white snout along the top, a white stripe goes end to end on the spine. They live in herds of 6-20 members, led by the strongest boar. Typically, 3-6 piglets are born at a time.

Red River Hogs eat grass, berries, roots, insects, mollusca, little vertebrates and carrion. They are capable of causing damage to plantations. ~~
