Wild boar (Sus scrofa)

Origin: Eurasia and North Africa, now found nearly worldwide

Sighted at: Pedernales Falls State Park, Johnson City, TX

I spent this past Tuesday at Pedernales Falls, one of the best parks I’ve been to since moving to Texas. I saw a grand assortment of wildlife – including a family of boars that didn’t take notice of me until I was nearly tight on top of them! The tall grass made it difficult to see the sows and the adorable little piglets, but I did manage to get this shot of the head of the family. This fella was enormous!
