The wild boar (Sus scrofa), also known as the wild swine or Eurasian wild pig, is a suid native to much of Eurasia, North Africa, and the Greater Sunda Islands.


  • Wild boars are usually notoriously wary of humans, for good reason, having been hunted almost to extinction in some parts of the world and despised and feared just about everywhere else.
  • A cane non magno sæpe tenetur aper.
    • The wild boar is often held by a small dog.
    • Ovid, Remedia Amoris, 422.
