Pigs: Suidae - Habitat

weather build ranges nests

Pigs live in altitudes of up to 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) and choose their habitats depending upon the availability of food, weather conditions, and the predator, animals that hunt pigs for food, population. African pigs occupy small territories or home ranges while other pigs tend to roam in search of better feeding grounds. Regardless of species, pigs build nests out of vegetation for protection from weather as well as for resting. Warthogs do not build their own nests but use those belonging to aardvarks. Home ranges must have sources of shade as well as water and mud holes. These three characteristics are important because some pigs do not have sweat glands to cool their bodies.

Well , to start off . . . the information you have in this text is very well writin ! On the other hand, I would like to add that you did forget many things about the pigs ! For example , like they only eat when they are not being watched ! (With the exception of their children ! Aswell , even though they don't run very fast , to escape from their enemies , they must protect themselves somehow , so they have an ability of hiding , in order to save themselves and their young ! That is all I would like to tell you for now ! And if you have any question about how I figured these out , then you can e-mail me at the e-mail above ! Thank You !
