Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A medium-sized animal living in grass and woodland. It has a large snout with four sharp tusks. It will aggressively defend itself.

Warthogs are wild animals who inhabit certain tropical biomes, appearing in clusters of 3 to 7 individuals. While they're heavier than the average dwarf (being larger than both pigs and wild boars), they're benign meanderers by nature and are more likely to flee from confrontation than pose any threat to your fortress, though in the event of a fight, they'll defend themselves with bites, kicks and by trying to stab their enemies with their tusks. A newborn warthog is called a piglet.

Warthogs can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets of fair value. For a meat industry, they're essentially better wild boars, but unlike pigs, they provide no milk. Unlike other swines, trained warthogs are grazers and as such require a constant source of grass, preferably in a pasture.

Some dwarves like warthogs for their short tempers.
