Warty Pig

Name: 
(Baboy talunon)
Sus cebifrons negrinus

They are considered the most threatened wild pig species in the world. They are extinct in Cebu, Guimaras and probably Masbate and now found only on the remaining forest patches on Negros and Panay.

Unique among wild pigs, they grow long, floppy coarse mane during breeding season and shed it when breeding season is over.
