Warthogs

Warthogs belong to the pig family, Suidae. They mostly occupy the grasslands, woodlands and savannas in the sub- Saharan Africa. We have four sub species including Nolan Warthog, Southern Warthog, Central African Warthog and the Eritrean warthog. They are not usually territorial. Instead, they occupy a home area. They are social animals that live in groups referred to as sounders.
