Boar ~ Wild
A group of wild boars is called 'sounders', which usually contain around 20 females and their young, but larger groups of over 50 have been reported. Adult males are solitary. Wild boars are active during the day and evening. Vocalizations are very important, and they will squeal when alarmed. Their diet consists of bulbs, roots, tubers, and nuts, as well as small rodents and occasionally even carrion.
Wild boar will live 15-20 years in the wild and up to 27 years in captivity.
