I Ain't No Pig!

This is a collared peccary (Tayassu tajacu), also commonly known by its Spanish name, javelina. Though it looks like it, they are not related to pigs. These guys wander in packs of a dozen or so animals. Their main food is prickly pair cactus. Imaged in Big Bend National Park, TX by my son, Curtis, in July 2005.
