The common warthog (Phacochoerus africanus) is a wild member of the pig family (Suidae) found in grassland, savanna, and woodland in sub-Saharan Africa.In the past, it was commonly treated as a subspecies of P. aethiopicus, but today that scientific name is restricted to the desert warthog of northern Kenya, Somalia, and eastern Ethiopia.

Ciao Luciano, gran bel facocero da un POV insolito, dettagli e notidezza al top, bei colori snaturali, bravissimo, buon Santo Stefano, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano,
Although the PoV is a bit too high here in my opinion (probably you shot from the top of a jeep or the animal was in a ditch), effective photo with the warthog forming a great semi-diagonal line in the composition. Thanks for sharing the hidden beauties from your Senegal trip. Enjoy the festive season.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Luciano,

Thank you to the wild life documentaries that we are known to many species, well composed and exposed also the informative NOTE.
Thank you for sharing.

Bonjour Luciano,

Tu as bien capturé l'action de l'animal. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du Phacochère Commun. La lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
