The wild boar is the largest of the wild pigs. It is bristly haired, grizzled, blackish or brown in colour, and stands up to 35 inches tall at the shoulder. Except for old males, which are solitary, wild boars live in groups. The animals are swift, nocturnal, and omnivorous and are good swimmers. They possess sharp tusks, and, although they are normally unaggressive, they can be dangerous. From earliest times, because of its great strength, speed, and ferocity, the wild boar has been one of the favourite beasts of the chase.
