Wild boars (Sus scrofa)

The wild boar (Sus scrofa) is one of the most common, widespread and important large mammals of the Old World. Its distribution covers most of Eurasia, where it is relatively common in substantial woodland and reedbed. Wild boar play a significant role in the shaping of many different environments, but it is in their relation with humans that their importance is particularly noteworthy. Not only has the wild boar been hunted by people for millennia — therefore providing an important protein source to the human diet — but it has also given rise to the domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus), one of the most important farm animals.
