WARTHOG- Neither graceful nor beautiful, warthogs are nonetheless remarkable animals. Found mostly south of the Sahara desert in Africa, these family members of pigs inhabit the arid and moist savannas and open plains and grasslands. Unlike most animals, warthogs can survive in areas without water supply from several months to up to a year. Warthogs can reach 4 to 6 feet in length and between 110 and 260 pounds of weight. The English name refers to their facial wattles, which are particularly distinct in males. They also have very distinct tusks, which reach a length of 25.5 to 63.5 cm (10.0 to 25.0 in) in the males, but are always smaller in the females.
