wild boar

Sus scrofa

Description:

A pig with a fair amount of brown hair.

Habitat:

I saw evidence of them in the Puna area, the rainy side of the Big Island of Hawaii.

Notes:

Residents of the Rainforest Zoo outside Hilo, Hawaii. They can do some damage to orchards (though I didn't see anything too threatening on the trees I was shown), but provide good eating for luaus and pulled pork sandwiches. They were brought to the Islands by Polynesians long ago (400 AD) and interbred with European pigs after Capt. Cook's arrival.
