The common name of the animal also called pig, and collectively swine. The eyes of the hog are very small and sunken, his nose is mobile, his form without beauty, his motions clumsy, and his appearance slothful and stupid. The hog is highly prized for its flesh, which supplies a chief article of food to many nations in the form of pork, bacon, ham, sausage, etc. Its fat is made into lard, its skin into leather for the saddler and trunk-maker, and its bristles are largely used in the manufacture of brushes. Wild hogs are common in many countries, and are hunted in various places. They are dangerous on account of their expert use of their tusks or long canine teeth. Wart-hogs have large lobes on each side of the face, and remarkably modified teeth. The African river-hog is of a gray color, and the West African red river-hog is remarkable for vivid coloring and long pencilled ears.
