There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I forget the exact account but it's an African with a Warthog kill.

Are you sure? I know that that pig looks like a warthog, but then so does this Indian boar (mistakenly called a 'warthog') at 0:10, because of its grey color, and its large, curved tusk, but because of the tiger, we know that it's not a warthog in Africa:

Its 100% a warthog
You can tell by the "warts" by the base of the jaw which only they have.

Wild boar and Warthog look very different, there is no issue identifying one over the other especially up close like this.

Agreed, that posting of @Rage2277 has lion and warthog. If someone doesn´t believe, just find some biologist who studies those animals and send email to get a professional to verify.

Generally, warthogs are distinguishable from Indian boar in that the former have more prominent and curved tusks than the latte:

Though as pointed out earlier, some boar can have rather prominent, curved tusks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSjWxNvn_C8
   

But anyway, why would Gir India Films, which regularly shows videos of Asiatic lions in and out of Gir Forest, or the forest itself, suddenly mess things up by giving a video of an African lion and pretending that it's an Asiatic lion?

I put here a still picture. Anyone can look and make conclusion. What some youtube channel shares is then again interesting thing. Many channels post videos with wrong content and it happens all the time. So I am not at all surprised to see one more.

But good if this case makes people more interested about differences between warthogs and wild boars. I hope, that people search photos and compare. That is good way to learn :)

Here can be found "cover photo" of that video and information. But maybe that photo and video are from two different incidents.

Almost like the Hyena and Lions are working off of one another here...
