The Warthog is a wild member of the pig family found in grassland, savanna, and woodlands in sub-Saharan Africa. Their name comes from the four large, wart-like protrusions found on the head of the warthog, which serve as a fat reserve and are used for defense when the males fight.
When startled or threatened, Warthog can be surprisingly fast, running up to 34 miles per hour.
Warthog sleep and rest in holes usually dug by aardvarks.
