Contender 1: Collared Peccary

The Collared Peccary, also known as the javelina, is a medium-sized mammal native to the Americas. It is characterized by its unique appearance, with a stocky body and short legs. The javelina has coarse, bristly fur that can range in color from gray to reddish-brown. One of its most distinguishing features is the white collar-like patch of fur around its neck, from which it gets its common name. These social animals live in groups called "sounders" and are known for their strong scent glands, which they use to mark their territories.

Fun Fact: One fun fact about the Collared Peccary is that despite its appearance, it is not a pig but belongs to the Tayassuidae family, which is related to hippos and whales.

Contender 2: Wild Boar

The Wild Boar, also known as the feral pig, is a large, omnivorous mammal that can weigh up to 300 pounds and stand up to 3 feet tall at the shoulder. They have a distinctive snout and tusks, which they use for digging and defense. Wild Boars are found in many parts of the world, including Europe, Asia, and North America, and are known for their aggressive behavior and destructive impact on ecosystems.

Fun Fact: Wild Boars are excellent swimmers and can cross rivers and lakes with ease, making them difficult to contain or control.
