Hogs of forests and prairies in Charente-Maritime, western France

The hogs of the forests and the prairies of Charente-Maritime, France

Hogs are very present in the Charente-Maritime. It is found in forests, woods or swamps. All Charentais have seen at least a wild boar during a walk or drive. But taking a picture of a boar is another story. It is a wary animal, very fearful of people. It is the only big French mamal that is omnivorous. It is a gregarious species. The male is called boar, the female is called a sow. The young juvenile is called piglet. There is only one species in Europe. A wild boar can live up to 15 years but this is very rare because it is much hunted. A photograph to realize is when the hair bristles. Indeed, the hairs of the spine (the mane) are also erection. Photographing wild boars is difficult because Charente-Maritime forests are dense and very large. They fear people. Photo techniques are based on using blinds or approach.
