Another great spotting Adam. I saw these as well but in Lope NP but was unable to get a photo. Looking through your spottings I can't believe how many of the exact same places we have been! The only difference I guess being that I'm paying to go and you're getting paid to go! Hahaha!

Here's my zoo spotting of these beautiful hogs, which I only offer up so you can see the cute babies which look like little watermelons --http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/7198433
