Oliver's warty pig
Did you know? Originally considered a subspecies of the Philippine warty pig, Oliver’s warty pig can be distinguished by its very elongated facial skeleton, which points more downward.
Although their habitat preference remains mostly unclear, the species seems to be found in lowland, mid-montane and dry-molave forests, and savannah grasslands.
Presumed to be similar to their closely-related species (S. philippensis), their diet seems to include a wide variety of plants, tubers, fallen fruits, and invertebrates.
Nothing is known.
Primarily habitat loss, high hunting pressure, and hybridisation with free-ranging domestic pigs.
Very little information is known about this species, but they tend to restrict themselves to mountainous areas, such as Mt. Iglit-Baco National Park which is a protected area. Further research and surveys are needed to protect the species from their decline.
