Amazing Shot Kills Monster Warthog From Over 300 Yards Away
Normally you don’t see a warthog this big, let alone see a kill-shot on one from this distance, but watching the video below, you get the best of both worlds !! Warthogs, as one might guess from the name, are members of the Swine family and are related to pigs, boars and hogs.
And as the name also suggests, warthogs have patches on their faces that look like warts, but are just thick growths of skin. These patches act as padding for when males fight during mating season.
They have large teeth or tusks. Common warthogs have two upper and four to six lower incisors, while desert warthogs lack incisors. The upper tusks grow up to 10 or 11 inches long, according to the San Diego Zoo.From hooves to shoulders, warthogs are around 30 inches tall and 35 to 59 inches long from shoulders to rump. They weigh a hefty 120 to 250 lbs. Common warthogs are slightly larger than desert warthogs.
Like their relatives, warthogs are plump, hooved animals with large nostrils at the end of the snout. They have little fur, except for a mane that goes down the spine to the middle of the back.Their tails also end with a tuft of hair
So, kudos to the hunter in the video, not just for the amazing long distance shot, but also for the incredible trophy he bagged for himself !!
