Red River hogs


A Triple Birthday Celebration for Our Sounder

April 08, 2023 | 1 minute read

We have a triplet birthday! Our sounder of Red River hogs, ‘Kwango’, ‘Sankuru’, and ‘Lokoro’ are turning six years old today!

Red River hogs are the most colourful members of the pig family, and their colouration can vary depending on where they are from. This species is typically red, but they can feature white stripes and white facial masks. Male hogs, like the brothers here, will usually have two well-developed warts. These warts even have a purpose – they help to protect from tusk damage when males scrabble with each other!

Stop by the African Savannah to wish our hog trio a happy, happy, happy birthday!
