Wild Boar

The wild boar (Sus scrofa), also known as the wild swine or Eurasian wild pig is a suid native to much of Eurasia, North Africa, and the Greater Sunda Islands. Human intervention has spread its range further, making the species one of the widest­ranging mammals in the world, as well as the most widely spread uniform. Its wide range, high numbers, and adaptability mean that it is classed as least concern by the IUCN. The animal probably originated in Southeast Asia during the Early Pleistocene and outcompeted other said species as it spread throughout the Old World. The animal can run at a maximum speed of 40 km/h and jump at a height of 140-150 cm (55-59 in), males may reach average weights as low as 50 kg (110 lb) and females 45 kg (99 lb), with shoulder heights of 63-65 cm (25-26 in)
