The Wart hog; Lives in open country from the Orange Free State to Senegal and Ethiopia. About five feet long. I shelters in old antbear burrows and goes about in family groups, feeding on roots and grasses and anything else it can find. It will often get down on it's knees and shuffle along when feeding, but when alarmed can run fast, tail held high.
This is my least favorite of all your sculptures. To my mind he has no redeeming social value, and he's even worse from the rear. I don't know why you would waste the clay it took to make this poor homely fellow. But I guess Wart Hogs need love too. I love him. Mom
