Pictures and information about babirusas, an endangered member of the pig family. They're part of the genus Babyrousa.

The babirusa is a wild hog from the islands of Indonesia. It got its name due to the curious carving tusks which grow through the snout of the male. Native islanders, thiking the tusks resembled deer antlers, named this distant relative of the farm big "babirusa" or "pig deer".
