This unique animal is a cross between a wild boar and a domestic pig. They were originally bred to resemble pigs represented in ancient European prehistoric artwork of the Iron Age.

These pigs are raised mainly in Europe, and are much more aggressive and harder to handle than domestic pigs, as one would imagine.  This hybrid has been observed occurring naturally in Australia where escapee domestic pigs breed with wild boars.
