This African bushpig is a real character! His scruffy hair and nasty tusks are hallmarks of the bushpig species. We don't come across these mounts often and this one is an excellent representation of the species. He is well mounted with his ears up and alert and a relaxed expression on his face. The taxidermy quality is Excellent on this guy. Add him to your African collection for a real conversation piece.
About the Bushpig
Scientific Name: Potamochoerus
Potamochoerus is a genus in the pig family. The two species are restricted to sub-Saharan Africa, although the bushpig, possibly due to introduction by man, also occurs in Madagascar and nearby islands. Early in the 20th century, there were considered to be as many as five different species within the genus.
