Russian Wild Boar
Referred to as the "Russian Wild Boar", this sub-species of Wild
Boar is indigenous the eastern Europe, Russia and parts of Asia. Having a
reputation of being the most aggressive sub-species of Wild Boar, my experience can testify that he lives up his reputation. Native Russian Wild Boars tend to be solid black, but can also be dark brown in color, as their ranges overlap in areas like The Ukraine, Poland, and the Republic of Belarus with the ranges of the European Wild Boar. The Russian Boar displays the largest and longest skull measurements, and does not have as prominent a "razorback" as the European Boars are famous for. They tend to have the largest tusks, both in length and circumferences of all the Wild Boar species. Size wise it tends to be larger than the Western European Wild Boar, and the majority of the "Top 10" (so to speak) largest Wild Boars we have ever harvested off of our preserve have been Russian Boars that tipped the scale at well over 450-500lbs, and even one over 650lbs!
