Warthogs have naked skin with long, brown bristles. A feature they are known for are their curved tusks that protrude from their long snout. They are used to fight and also used for digging up roots, which all warthogs love to eat. Boars (Males) stand about 680 mm tall and weigh about 80 kg. Sows (Females), being smaller, are about 600 mm. tall and weigh approximately 57 kg. Their flat head has distinctive wart-like tubercles on it, hence the name warthog. The tail of the warthog has a tuft of hair at the end of it, most noticeable while it's erect when the warthog is running.
