Javelinas are the only wild, native, pig-like animal found in the United States. But they are NOT pigs! They are the Collared Peccary and a member of the Tayassuidae family. True pigs are members of the Suidae family. We call them javelinas because of their razor-sharp tusks, Spanish for javelin or spear. They are found in the brushy deserts and rocky canyons of the Sonoran Desert.
Physical Facts
Javelinas are very slender, unlike pigs. The adult male ranges from 46-60 inches in length, 20-24 inches in height and weighs between 40 and 60 pounds. They have only 3 toes on each hind foot instead of 4. They can run fast and have been clocked at 35 miles per hour. Their upper tusks extending 1 inches in length, are pointed down, not outward or upward as in pigs.
