The wild pig, also called the wild hog, wild boar or feral pig, is the second-most popular, large animal hunted in Florida (second only to the white-tailed deer). It may have been introduced in Florida by Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. Wild pigs can reach weights of more than 150 lbs. and be 5-6 feet long. They usually travel in small family groups or alone. Wild pigs are omnivorous (eating all kinds of foods, both plants and animals) and feed by rooting with their broad snouts. They may cause disturbance of the soil and ground cover vegetation and leave the area looking like a plowed field.
