Don't call me a Pig

Painting completed in: 2013

These are not Pigs or Wild Hogs, they are Javelinas or Collared Peccaries and are not even related to Pigs. Javelinas are a Native species that are found in arid regions of Texas and the Southwest. They eat mostly Cactus and Insects and rarely weigh over 40 pounds. A friend of a friend had a pet Javelina and I shot lots of photographs!
