“The wild boar, also known as the wild swine, or Eurasian wild pig is native to much of Eurasia, North Africa, and the Greater Sunda Islands. Human intervention has spread its range further, making the species one of the widest-ranging mammals in the world. Accordingly, Eurasian wild boar, released, or escaped into habitats where they are not native, such as in North America, are not generally considered feral, although they may interbreed with feral pigs. As of 1990, up to 16 subspecies are recognized, which are divided into four regional groupings based on skull height and lacrimal bone length.The species lives in matriarchal societies consisting of interrelated females and their young (both male and female). Fully grown males are usually solitary outside the breeding season.”
