Funny little fellows. They seem shy, scurrying away when the vehicle approaches. If the truth be told they are quite ugly. While running, their tails stick straight up in the air, just like the movie character Pumba. Apparently this tail thing is so that warthogs know where each other are, even in higher brush. Ever wonder where the idea of those fluorescent orange bike safety flags came from? Pumba!
There is a mother warthog and her children hanging around the hotel in Kasane, Botswana. The kids are playing and I am amazing at how fast they move.
Every time we see warthogs on the move they look like they are on a mission. Don’t spend a great deal of time watching these guys but they do make us laugh every time we see them.
