Autumn Adventure – Warthog Mud Spa

There must have been a special on offer on mud spa treatments at the uBhejane Hide while we were visiting the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in March this year, and the Warthogs were queuing for their turn!

    I am pleased that you have devoted a post to the humble warthog! If one is patient and gives them the attention they deserve, warthogs reveal all sorts of interesting aspects of their behaviour.

      Rolling in the mud protects their skin from the sun and biting insects, so the behaviour definitely has a functional role, but there is no doubt in my mind that they enjoy it immensely! Thanks for visiting, H.J, and for your kind comment.
