Habitat

Bornean bearded pigs inhabit Sumatra and Borneo.

Characteristic

Bornean bearded pig is an animal with a body length of 120-150 cm and a weight of around 40-100 kg. It has the thinnest torso and longest head of all species. Males are larger than females in physique. The body is generally light gray, but can be reddish-brown, dark-brown, or very light-brown, depending on the region and individual condition. It mainly inhabits Borneo Island in Malaysia, Sumatra Island in Indonesia, and the surrounding islands. I like rainforests and mangroves and live with my family. The individuals that live on Borneo are called Bornean bearded pigs, and the individuals that live on Sumatra are called Bornean bearded pigs. This wild boar has sharp fangs and grows to a length of 25 cm in males. Bornean bearded pigs are most active in the morning and afternoon.

Ecology

Bornean bearded pigs are plant-based and live mainly on fruits, roots, nuts and plants. Bornean bearded pigs breed all year round. The gestation period is about 3-4 months. You can give birth to around 1-7 animals at a time. Newborns stay in the nest for about a week after birth. During this time, the mother becomes irritable and behaves to drive away all approaching creatures. The life is said to be about 13 years.

Endangered species

Bornean bearded pigs inhabit the Malaysian Peninsula and Sumatra, where environmental destruction is progressing and their numbers are gradually declining. Bornean bearded pigs are sometimes eaten by locals, and hunting poses a major threat. In addition, deforestation is progressing, and the area where Bornean bearded pigs can live continues to shrink, and their habitat is disappearing. Bornean bearded pig is currently designated as an endangered species.

Breeding

Bornean bearded pigs are currently declining in number. Therefore, it is quite difficult for ordinary people to breed. Watch at the zoo or go to Southeast Asia.
