Ugly and not even in a cute way

This is the warthog.  It seems like when the animals were made, all the spare parts were given to the warthog and placed on the head.  They are found in most parts of Africa, including those areas that go without water for long periods of time.  They live in family groups of a female and her young, with other females sometimes joining the group.  There are primarily grazers but they also dig for bulbs and roots.  They have poor vision so their senses of smell and hearing are enhanced.  The average weight is 120-250 pounds.  I wouldn't want an encounter with one, even if it was small.
