THE COLLARED PECCARY: (Pecari tajacu)
or "musk hog," referring to the animal's scent glands,
occurs from the southwestern United States into
South America and the island of Trinidad. They are
found in all kinds of habitats, from arid scrublands to
humid tropical rainforests. The Collared Peccary is
well adapted to habitat disturbed by humans, merely
requiring sufficient cover; they can be found in cities
and agricultural land throughout their range. Notable
populations exist in the suburbs of Phoenix and Tucson,
Arizona, where they will feed on ornamental plants and
other cultivated vegetation.[6][7] Collared Peccaries
are generally found in bands of eight to 15 animals of
various ages. They will defend themselves with their
long tusks If they feel threatened but otherwise tend
to ignore human beings.
