Wild boar

They have an elongated and elastic snout that can be used to dig out roots and bulbs

Richard Bartz

Wild boar is the most widespread suiform and one of the widest-ranging mammals in the world. Their body is bulky, with short and relatively thin legs. They also have a large head, about one-third of the body length, and a pair of short and robust trunks.

The coat consists of rough and long bristles underlaid with short fur; the color can vary in different locations and ages. The back bristles of males can stand erect when they are agitated. They spend as much as 12 hours per day sleeping in a nest and leave their shelter to find food during the night as they are nocturnal.
