The boar has a short but strongly built body with a powerfully built spinal column. The legs are rather long and slim with black fur. The whole body is somewhat conical and flattened. The male’s chainteeth protrude out of the mouth. Piglets have horizontal white stripes. Boars usually inhabit forests.
Boars live in loose bands of up to five members. Piglets stay with their mothers for a year. The males are mostly solitary.
The boar is omnivorous and eats anything from mushrooms to rabbits. Carnivorous boars tend to be the largest. Boars also eat poisonous snakes and scorpions. Among their favorite food is nuts and truffles.
The boars are wild animals who will attack even wolves and humans. Males are usually the aggressors, but females with cubs may attack without reason. In the mating season, the boars will wander around and not eat. At that time they will have to fight other males and will be extremely aggressive.
