Land of the Tiger
The Visayan warty pig is a relatively small species of pig with short legs, a short neck, small eyes, large snouts, and tusks. The females are considerably smaller than the males at an average body length of 12-18 inches, and weighing between 44-77 pounds when full grown. Males can grow up to 25 inches long and weigh between 77-88 pounds, sometimes up to 178 pounds. The males also have three pairs of facial warts, giving this pig their unique name. Both males and females have tufts of hair on the crowns of their heads, which the males may grow out into a mane during mating season. Visayans also have a distinctive white stripe along their jaw and bridge of the nose.
