Contender 1: 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.

Contender 2: Warthog

The Warthog is a robust, high-shouldered animal, native to the grassland, savannah, and woodland regions of sub-Saharan Africa. Most recognizable by its large, flat head adorned with a pair of elongated tusks and a set of wart-like protrusions, the Warthog also has a large, barrel-shaped body and a mane that runs down its spine to the middle of the back. Despite their somewhat comical appearance, warthogs are formidable in the wild, capable of running at speeds up to 30 miles per hour.

Fun Fact: When threatened, Warthogs can be surprisingly agile, and rather than relying on their tusks for defense, they usually choose to flee, sprinting with their tails erect to serve as a warning for others.
