Wild Boar – 2 weeks old


Wild Boar – 2 weeks old, originally uploaded by Ben909.

This tiny female wild boar is just two weeks old, and is being hand reared in the Forest of Dean, apparently rejected by her mother in her first few days of life. She is about the size of my foot – something she took great pleasure in nudging and chewing today! The striped markings will eventually fade as she grows older and larger.
