The warty peccary (Skinnerhyus latabuccae) is a species of peccary and a member of a group of pig-like hoofed mammal family Tayassuidae (New World pigs) that originally lived from the late Miocene of Nebraska, United States, as an extinct species, Skinnerhyus shermerorum, and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and introduced throughout the rainforests, swamps, marshlands, forests, and open woodlands across North America to help boost biodiversity. The warty peccary, uniquely among peccaries, has comparatively enormous, wing-like cheekbones, which are only possessed by males and are used for courtshipping the females. Warty peccaries tend to live in groups of four to six. The diet of the warty peccary mainly consists of roots, tubers, and fruits that can be found in the forested environments such as forests. Warty peccaries may also eat cultivated crops that are not properly protected. Warty peccary reds are often seen between the months of March and May in their habitats. The average number of warty peccary reds is three to four per litter. The conservation status of the warty peccary is Least Concern due to successful conservation efforts, the warty peccary's wide range and its tolerance to many of the human activities.
