IUCN Status: Critically endangered
Little is known about these pigs as they have only recently been recognised as a separate species. They are a small forest-dwelling pig found throughout the Visayan Islands of the Philippines, although it is now 98% extinct from its former range and classified as Critically Endangered on the ICUN Red List. They are normally found in groups of 4 to 5 and sows typically produce between 1-3 piglets in the dry season. They are unique from wild pigs as they have crests and manes that grow long during the breeding season.
