Warthogs are omnivores and feed on most things, but in particular grass, roots, berries and bark
They are native to Africa and adapted for grazing on grassland
Eyes on the side of their head means they're more likely to see approaching predators
The large cheek warts on their head are not actually warts. They're protective fat reserves that help protect their face during an attack
Warthogs are wild pigs native to Africa and given their name due to wart-like growths on the sides of their heads!
They have one or two pairs of “warts” (that are actually fat reserves) on their face beneath the eyes and near the tusks. Males are larger than females but both sexes have upper and lower tusks. They are active in the day and hide away at night, most often in burrows that have been made by aardvarks!
They can live up to 15 years and grow as large as 100kg. Warthogs prefer grassland and woodland habitats with a water source close by.
