In the Real World
Prick-like bristles in various shades of brown and gray cover the warthog's body, although longer bristles form a mane from the top of the head down the spine to the middle of the back. The long tail ends with a tuft of bristles. The warthog characteristically carries its tail upright when it runs like a tiny flag. The warthog's large tusks are unusual: The two upper ones emerge from the sides of the snout to form a semicircle; the lower tusks at the base of the uppers are worn to a sharp cutting edge.
In The Lion Guard
Warthogs are swines that are closely related to pigs, boars, and hogs. Males weigh 20-50 pounds more than females, but both are distinguished by their disproportionately large heads and “warts” which are protective pads that appear on both sides of the head. Warthogs are omnivores that feed on grass, insects and worms. They often fall prey to many predators, but they are able to defend themselves with their sharp tusks.
Pumbaa the warthog appears in numerous episodes throughout the series.
