Red River Hog 1 by dtf-stock Red River Hog 1 by dtf-stock
Red River Hog
Taken at the San Diego Zoo.

These are without a doubt my very favorite pig ever. They're simply BEAUTIFUL. Their color is so vibrant, and they're quite personable, very friendly sorts of pigs - in a wild animal 'I'll bite at whatever you might happen to have in your hand but if you scratch me right there I will love you forever' kind of way. :) They're not small, either, they're about 3'4" at the shoulder.

If you would like to use this image, please link me, and ask before using for any profit-making image.

Holy crap, my first Daily Deviation :D

I'm so glad I went and uploaded all these pictures today! Thank you all and I hope you enjoy my critters :D

Edit again: here's a wiki article, in case people are confused as to what flavor of hog this is. It's a real animal, honest and for true :D

Well isn't that a pretty soul.  Love the long face and the hair coat is gorgeous.  Really cute hair tufts on the ears and look at that long tail.  Great photo shot you captured.

I was really happy with it, thank you! They are absolutely adorable critters. Quite big, too, and much more narrow than their piggy counterparts seem to be :D

The ears totally do it for me though, I love tufts!

A red river hog! I love those guys!
There used to be one at the local park/zoo that broke through the inner fencing and would chill right by the outer fencing. I, being the big child I am, decided to try and pet him since I assumed he wanted to socialise. I wasn't wrong; as soon as I started scratching him behind the ear he flopped onto his side and raised his leg like a dog after a belly scratch. Of course to reach him it meant I had to hop up and lean over the railing while balancing on my hips as alll the blood rushed to my head. Which I did.  Countless times. I'm a terrible example to children, but my little RRH buddy seemed happy enough!

Hahahaha! That's pure awesome! :D They weren't *quite* close enough to the walkway area (at least, not after the bushes were put in there...) to do that, but soooo tempting to reach out and touch them. They're just beautiful!

Ah, sorry for lateness on comment (before fave) due to busyness. I chose to favourite this picture because I found it simple yet beautiful in colour. I've never seen this type of hog either but he looks like an interesting little fella'. What's the most eye catching is how his fur is so detailed and sticks out. Brill.

Well, you said on your journal:

Preferably on DA, but I have no restrictions outside of DA *as long as there's a link crediting me here*.

And since I've added nothing but a link to the wiki, I figured that that was okay. I mean, there are quite a few stock artists who explicitly prohibit any use outside of DA, but you didn't seem to be among them. I'm sorry if I misunderstood that.

No that's okay. I'm just not particularly fond of wikis. But it's fine :)
