A huge monster boar with jagged tusks.

Giant wild boars are roughly 10 times the size of standard wild boars. They appear in groups of 5-10 wandering through various savage biomes, and may also serve as mounts during a siege.

Despite the ferocity implied by their name, they share the [benign] token with their smaller cousins, and will generally run away instead of engaging in combat. They also lack the ability to perform vicious goring attacks with their tusks, but they are large enough to seriously injure unarmored dwarves if cornered.

Captured giant wild boars can be tamed and bred as livestock for a meat industry. Their piglets grow to full size in two years, producing a respectable amount of meat and ivory tusks as a bonus. As non-grazers, they can be conveniently stored in cages and small pastures while they are growing.

Some dwarves admire giant wild boars for their tusks and their ferocious charges, despite the fact that they use neither in-game.
