Common Warthog

Set of standing side elevation drawings of the Common Warthog

Common Warthogs are medium-sized wild pigs with a large head that is accompanied by large tusks that can grow up to 25 inches (63.5 cm). Having those large tusks helps the warthog defend itself from its larger prey.

Warthogs have bristly black hair covering their black and/or brown skin. They are also omnivores but mainly stick to a plant-based diet since they only eat meat if they need too. Warthogs can be found all over Africa as they are not territorial and travel to find their suitable home. Warthogs are not the prettiest animal, but they are one of the smartest in Africa.

Common Warthogs have a height between 25”-33” (64-84 cm), body length of 36”-60” (91-152 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 120-250 lb (55-110 k)g. The lifespan of a Common Warthog is typically 15-18 years in the wild, or up to 20 years in captivity.
