Animal Weight

How much does a Visayan warty pig weight?

It is hard to guess what a Visayan warty pig weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Visayan warty pig (Sus cebifrons) on average weights 189.4 kg (417.55 lbs).

The Visayan warty pig is from the family Suidae (genus: Sus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.35 meter (4′ 6″). On average, Visayan warty pigs can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 4.

As a reference: An average human weights in at 62 kg (137 lbs) and reaches an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). Humans spend 280 days (40 weeks) in the womb of their mother and reach around 75 years of age.

The average adult weight of a Visayan warty pig is 189.4 kg (417.55 lbs)

The Visayan warty pig (Sus cebifrons) is a critically endangered species in the pig genus (Sus). It is endemic to six of the Visayan Islands (Cebu, Negros, Panay, Masbate, Guimaras, and Siquijor) in the central Philippines. It is known by many names in the region (depending on the island and linguistic group) with most translating into ‘wild pig’: baboy ihalas (‘wild pig’ in Cebuano and Hiligaynon), baboy talonon (‘forest pig’ in Hiligaynon), and baboy sulop (‘dark pig’ in Cebuano)The Visayan warty pig is critically endangered due to habitat loss and hunting. It is believed to be extinct in four of the islands in its original native range, with only small surviving populations in Negros and Panay. Due to the small numbers of remaining Visayan warty pigs in the wild, little is known of their behaviors or characteristics outside of captivity. In 2012 the Negros Interior Biodiversity Expedition undertook camera trapping in the Northern Negros Natural Park and gained the first photos taken in the wild of the Visayan warty pig.
