Warthogs are about 5 feet long and have an 18 inch tail. Standing about 28
inches at the shoulder they can weigh up to 200 pounds. Their defense system
is their two tusks sticking out in front and their face is covered in wartlike
bumps. They have a long head, long legs, and a stout thick neck. When you see
them from the side, their silhouette somewhat resembles a horse. Warthogs make
small dens in brush or sometimes in abandoned aardvark dens to use at night,
and when they enter, they enter backwards with their tusks facing the entrance.
In a litter of babies, there are about 2-6 young.
