No larger than a small dog, this species of boar is adapted to living in the warm, wet environment of the jungle and the veldts along its fringes. Easily able to hide in the underbrush because of its small size, the creature gives a loud, ear-splitting squeal when threatened, and its pointed tusks can be quite dangerous. Jungle natives who live near their habitat believe the boars to be watchers over the souls of those who have died within the jungle. As such, they eat boar meat only after giving thanks to the deceased animal’s spirit, and they prefer to consume it as infrequently as possible.
