The greater hog badger is a mammal with dark grey to brownish body fur and a pale yellow to white tail. Their face and throat are white, with two thick dark stripes on their face. They also possess an elongated pig-like snout and teeth that are pointed forward for turning over the soil.
These animals are exceptional burrowers as they dig into the ground to find their food and to create burrows acting as their shelter. Their diet mainly consists of fallen fruits, roots, and tubers. They also supplement their diet with invertebrates and small vertebrates on the forest floor.
