Warthog in typical feeding position
This is how Warthogs commonly feed, they bend their front legs backwards and then crouch on their wrists. They even have special pads on their wrists to do so. During the dry season, Warthogs use their superb digging skills to feed on roots.
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.
