Warthog (Phacochoerus porcus)
Entertaining to watch their behaviour, the males have four facial warts and the female only two. Both sexes have tusks. Active during early mornings and late afternoons. Look for Warthog mud-bathing during the midday hours. Lice and lice pupae cling to their course hair. Gruntling noises distinct warthog in close vicinity. The boar is always at the back of a family pack, fleeing with tails held straight up. Omnivorous, Warthog uses their upper lips like spades to dig for tubers and bulbs. When wounded, Warthog flee straight to their burrows, making them unretrievable.
Although a thin-skinned animal, adequate penetration is necessary. Wounded animals may survive for days on end. A good shot would be in line with the front leg, in the middle of the body. The heart protrudes downwards. Do not attempt frontal brain shots.
Broadside and quartering away shots are advised.
