Collared Peccary - Jennifer Deutscher
United States of America
Peccaries are a medium-size New World pig. They typically grow to 1-1.5 meters in length and weigh around 30 kg. This image depicts a collared peccary (Pecari tajacu) in the Sonoran desert, taking shelter from the hot desert sun underneath an ocotillo (Fouquieria splendens). The name collared peccary comes from a "collar" of light fur around its neck, shown just behind the jaw in the illustration. It is also known as a javelina or a musk hog, on account of a strong odor produced by glands on its rump.
