Wild boars (a.k.a. wild swine) belong to the “suid family” and they are the ancestor of most domestic pig breeds.
Wild boar is native to Europe, Asia, northern Africa and the Greater Sunda Islands. It is an extremely adaptable animal and it can be found in a variety of different habitats.
They have short thin legs and thin tusk. Their head is very large and has a thick and short neck. Wild boars are social animals. They live under groups led by an old matriarch.
When the males are about 8 to 15 months old, leave these groups and live in solitary during the breading season.
