The Forest

Throughout you visit you will come across wild boars. The boar is a wild pig native of Europe loves swampy thickets. Often the wild boars wallow in mud in areas called “trench” and rub against tree trunks to get rid of some parasites and mark their territory. He has grey skin and thin grey and black fur.

Wild boars can travel great distances and even cross rivers! However, these animals ultimately return to their territory.

The wild boar, omnivore, consumes numerous parts of a great number of plants (tubers, fruits including acorns and nuts, cereals, etc), mushrooms, many animal (worms, mollusks, insects and their larvae, small mammals, birds and other sauropsides) dead or alive.

The female wild boar, sow, will give birth to two to twelve piglets. The sow will have two or three litters per year, which explains the proliferation in Europe. The wild boars have a striped brown fur that unify into adulthood.
