Additional Information
The Warthog from Schleich® WILD LIFE is a mammal that lives in Africa and primarily eats roots, tubers and berries. It has wart-shaped growths under the eyes and above the nose. They aren’t actually warts but rather particularly thick skin that protects the animal from serious injury during fights. The tusks are used to defend against lions, hyenas, leopards and wild dogs.

Fun Fact

To dig, however, warthogs do not use their tasks, instead using their snout and hoofs.
