Closeup of a Warthog, Ngorongoro, Tanzania They are very shy, usually we didn't get closer than 50-100m to these animals. In this case we were lucky though, possible a predator chased it into our range.

The warthog or common warthog is a wild member of the pig family found in grassland, savanna, and woodland in sub-Saharan Africa. In the past, it was commonly treated as a subspecies of ''P. aethiopicus'', but today that scientific name is restricted to the desert warthog of northern Kenya, Somalia, and eastern Ethiopia.
