On our birding walk we came across some domestic pigs. The guide called to them in the Nicaraguan way which you can see in this video link. internal link

Not much more than the snout could be seen of this unique Red River Hog. I'm not sure why but this is one of my favorite animals. external link

I forgot to ask why the Red River Hog external link was not on display. It was in a pen in the staff-only area. Fortunately, we passed that pen as we came back from our morning hike and I grabbed this shot over a rather high fence.

The profile of a warthogexternal link is not handsome. Neither is any other view.

They do have their niche in nature, but they just don't look good filling it.
