Scrofa live in family groups with the males being solitary. Males are aggressive with large tusks, females have no tusks. The young have strong, longitudinal stripes which fade with age.
Smaller and lighter than the human era pig, it is lightly with slim, flexible legs and delicate hooves built to trot across the limestone karst and jump across the cracks or grykes.
Scrofa’s spend most of the day foraging for food, sniffing out plants and insects with their long snouts. They will also feed on cryptile lizard eggs if they find them.
Females have a litter of several young called scroflets. Adults protect the young from gryken.
Wild boar breeding: Birth, called farrowing, usually occurs in the spring; a litter will typically contain five piglets, but up to 13 have been known. Presumably the scrofa is similar.
