Who is that masked pig?

Not a warthog, though there is some resemblance. It’s a Red River Hog—a type of wild pig from Africa. These omnivorous hogs are mostly nocturnal. Red river hogs are good swimmers and fast runners. They will eat almost anything and using their snout as a plow can cause considerable damage to agricultural crops.
