Artist's Description

Only 200 Visayan warty pigs are thought to be left in their native habitat in the Philippines – making them the rarest of all wild pigs. They have distinctive tufts of hair and are covered in warts (scent glands) – which aren’t that easy to spot!

During breeding season mature males grow their mane into a striking ‘rock and roll’ hair style, similar to a ‘mohican’, to impress the females. This distinctive look doesn’t last though as at the end of the breeding season the male becomes almost bald again.
