Bushpig (Potamochoerus larvatus)
…is a species of pig native to Eastern and Southern Africa, with populations in Madagascar and the Comoros archipelago as-well. Like other pigs and the closely related Red river hog (P. porcus) the bugpish is omnivorous and feeds mostly on roots, grasses, carrion, insects and small animals. They are also fairly social animals and will live in small sounders (groups) of around 10 members, these groups forage together and are noted to be extremely aggressive especially when they are with young.

But it’s actually because of bad advice. They see criminals with money and nice things, and those are their examples of success. So they look to them for advice.”
