Twenty species are included in this group, which includes true pigs, as well as hogs, warthogs and similar pig-like animals. Species in this group range in weight from the 6 kg pygmy hog up to the 275 kg (600 pounds!) giant forest hog. The domestic pig is most closely related to the wild boar (Sus scrofa), which can be found pictured on Smithsonian WILD.
