Pecari – Collared peccary

Suffering from poorly developed vision, they heavily rely on vocalization to communicate

As their common name hinted, they have white hairs around their neck that look like a collar. Their fur was bristly, grizzled grey, and brown. They may seem weak on their own, but they can defend themselves against the predators as a horde.

Collared peccary is mainly herbivores with a diet consisting of mesquite beans, palm nuts, cactus, fruits, tubers, and other green vegetation. But they also eat rodents, lizards, and dead birds if the opportunity presents itself. They are active at night during summer when the temperature is cooler, whereas, in the winter, they are more active during the day.
