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.

No one topic about the rather interesting wild boars, warthogs and so on ? Let us start one...

Animal concerned by the first post : warthog...

Beverly Joubert: " Warthogs may not be considered the cutest animals in Africa, but there’s no denying the adorableness of this tiny piglet! Female warthogs usually have litters of two or three babies which they’ll keep under close watch until the piglets are old enough to fend for themselves. While mom grazes on grass or digs for roots and bulbs, this youngster will not stray far – he already knows that the bushveld is bristling with unseen danger and mom is his primary source of protection. When threatened warthogs typically bolt to the nearest burrow, but if forced to fight, those tusks can inflict some serious damage. "

Beverly Joubert: " With bristly coasts and bulging eyes, these warthog piglets are overflowing with adorableness! At this tender age, the duo need to be watchful for prowling predators. Warthogs are regularly taken by leopards and lions and, without fully developed tusks, these two don’t stand a chance against a skilled hunter. Their best defence is to scurry to the safety of a burrow (or get mom to face off against any would-be attackers). For now though, the coast is clear and the siblings can enjoy some peaceful grazing.

Maybe the largest Indian Boar I've ever seen photographed.

Michele Bavassano: " "Wild Boar"

I spent a week in the Abruzzo National Park. Dozens of km on an excursion in search of the animals of the park. This was a meeting I will not forget. At about 1800 meters above sea level, there was a family of wild boars just outside of a beech forest. We came out of the woods and were surrounded by wild boars.
Piglets and adults who immediately showed aggression towards us.
They waited for the piglets and when the puppies leave, after a few seconds of tension, we were able to continue our excursion. "
