Warthogs!



At our lodge in Victoria Falls, there were tons of warthogs hanging around, mostly eating, but sometimes running or fighting. Many tended to stay in what looked like family groups, mother, father and kiddies. They were really fascinating to watch up close the whole week.

They kneel down to facilitate eating:




This one (missing a tusk) looks like it wanted a treat:

makes me think of Pumba from Lion King! They're kind of "so ugly they're cute"! Love the pics. Keep them coming!

I agree, kind of cute in a water buffalo kind of way.

I think that one looks mean and/or sleepy, not that he wants a treat, haha.
