Say hello to the “punk rock pig”! Visayan warty pigs are native to the Philippines and are listed as critically endangered. They get their names from three pairs of fleshy “warts,” or bumps, on their faces. During mating season males will develop large, stiff, and spiky “hairdos” which has resulted in a nick name of the “punk rock pig”.
