Sus cebifrons, a critically endangered species of wild pig endemic to the Philippines. Thought to be common at one time throughout the Visayan Islands, the central archipelago of the Philippines, it can now only be found in limited areas of the islands of Panay and Negros. The Visayan warty pig is threatened by loss of habitat and by hunting, as the local peasants clear its forests for cropland and kill pigs that eat their crops. The warty bit of their name refers to three pairs of warts found on the faces of adult males.
