Inspiring you to embark on an unforgettable journey, discovering the beauty and wonder of Wild Boar in its natural habitat

Discover Tours

Wild boar are often seen as ferocious, wild animals that will chew anything in sight. They are the perfect example of an invasive species in many regions and have no natural predators in some areas.

Wild boars have huge tusks that can grow up to 17 inches! They use them to dig through dirt, open fruit, and to fight off their rivals. This is because female wild boars often live together in groups called sows. Males come around only when it's time for mating season.

Their habitat ranges from forests to even grasslands which help them thrive better as they do not enjoy living under trees where predators can easily follow them or high levels of humidity that come with forest life. Their diet consists mainly on plant roots but also fruit, nuts and berries depending on season and availability. They are however opportunistic feeders and will eat anything edible if they can get their teeth on it.

The female boar is called a sow and the male boar is called a boar; young wild boars are called piglets or shoats. They may live for up to fifteen years, depending on how well they are able to avoid predators like wolves and humans
