Warthogs live in woodlands and grasslands—and they are not picky about their homes. Instead of digging their own burrows, they find abandoned aardvark holes or natural burrows for homes. This is where they raise their young, sleep, and hide from predators.
Warthogs are not picky eaters. They’ll eat grass, roots, berries, tree bark, and even dead animals. Warthogs often kneel down on their front legs and use their muscular snout to dig up food. They even shuffle along in the kneeling position.
Boars have the most obvious “warts.” The boars push and ram each other with their heads and their blunt upper tusks to see which is the most powerful. The warts act as pads to cushion the blows.
