Wild Hogs

Previous Image Gallery Home Next Image
Wild Hogs have a confirmed maximum weight of 900 lbs for adult males and can be up to 9 ft long. If surprised or cornered they may become aggressive, particularly a sow with her piglets, and if attacked will defend themselves vigorously with their tusks. Wild Hogs live in groups called sounders. Sounders typically contain around 20 animals, but groups of over 50 have been seen. In a typical sounder there are two or three sows and their offspring; adult males are not part of the sounder outside of a breeding cycle, two to three per year, and are usually found alone.
