African Lens-Pig

It’s their tusks that makes warthogs, also known as African Lens-Pigs, so recognizable. They use their tusks for digging, defense against predators and when males fight each other.

Warthogs are fast runners. And they’re bigger than they look, ranging in size from 110 to 330 pounds.

Derek Nutley took this picture. I'm hoping he used a telephoto lens!
