Wild Boar(Sus Scrofa)

With its sparse black coat and bristled mane a large boar may stand three feet at the shoulder and weigh 300 pounds. The males have razor sharp tusks. The wild boar is omnivorous and its diet includes roots, tubers, insects, snakes and carrion.They feed normally in the early morning of the late evening. Four to six young are born at one time and the mother shelters them in a heaped-up mass of grass or branches, which she builds before she gives birth.
