Peccary or Javalina

Peccaries or javalinas (j pronounced like an h) live from southeast US to northern South America. These pig-like animals live in herds and are hunted for their meat. In this short video, you can learn quite a bit about peccaries and see some babies, too.

The first time I remember coming across these animals was in a picture book that does a southwest retelling of the 3 little pigs story using javelinas and coyotes. Fun version.
