Boar-Sus Scrofa ( Linnaeus ) ( Dukkar )
Wild boars were plentiful in the past and even today they are
quite apparent on the Kala Dungar in Pachham, but elsewhere they
are not as numerous as might be expected. This highly prolific
species is very destructive to crops. It commonly grubs for underground
roots and tubers but is omnivorous and also feeds on insects,
snakes and carrion.
