Red River Hog


  • They can live up to 20 years.

  • Their main predators are lions, pythons, leopards, hyenas and humans!

  • If startled, red river hog piglets will ‘possum’ or ‘play dead’, but as they get older they tend to just run away!

  • They are fast runners and aren’t afraid of water, in fact they are really good swimmers.

  • Red river hogs typically live in groups of six to 20 members, led by a dominant boar or male.
    The sows or females have three to six piglets at a time.
