  1. They are certainly very cute! I've heard that feral pigs are causing huge land disturbances in the south - particularly in Georgia. Not sure if that's also the case in Florida. Posted 5 years ago
    1. Feral pigs have been blamed for a lot of damage in a few areas... but I think they're being blamed for damage that was mostly caused by Hurricane Irma, and that the normal damage from the pigs and other foragers is just more visible this year due to fewer big plants (thanks to Irma, as well as some wildfires).

Razorback and wild hog are American colloquialisms, loosely applied to any type of feral domestic pig, wild boar or cross in North America. Pure wild boar are sometimes called "Russian boar" or "Russian razorbacks". The term "razorback" has also appeared in Australia, to describe such animals there.
