Appearance:


Wild pigs can reach weights of more than 150 pounds and be 5-6 feet long.


Habitat:


The wild pig (Sus scrofa), also called the wild hog, wild boar or feral pig, is not a native and may have been introduced by Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539.


They occur within a wide variety of habitats, but prefer oak-cabbage palm hammocks, freshwater marshes and sloughs and pine flatwoods.


Behavior:


They usually travel in small family groups or alone.


Wild pigs are omnivorous (eating all kinds of foods, both plants and animals) and feed by rooting with their broad snouts. They may cause disturbance of the soil and ground cover vegetation and leave the area looking like a plowed field.


Trying to prevent wild pigs from coming onto your property is usually futile, but adequate fencing can keep them out of small yards and gardens. On private property, nuisance pigs may be trapped using pens with trap doors and baited with acorns or old corn. Trapped animals may not be released on public land, and can only be released on private property with landowner permission.
