The boar or wild boar is a more ornery and dangerous cousin of the domesticated pig. They can be found in the woodlands of much of Avistan and Garund, and are frequently hunted for their flesh, which is considered a delicacy.
A wide variety of boar species exist across Golarion, from the warthogs of the tropical plains and savannahs, the Sargavan boar of the Mwangi Expanse and Sargava, to the blood boar of Razmiran's Exalted Wood.
Dire boar Edit
The dire boar or daeodon is a much larger, and much more aggressive relative of the common wild boar. While wild boars are omnivores, dire boars prefer the taste of fresh meat, and their keen senses and large, sharp tusks make them superior predators. Primarily scavengers, daeodons occasionally attack smaller, lone individuals if no easier source of food is present. Orcs sometimes use dire boars as mounts, and dire boar-mounted orc cavalry can be a truly terrifying sight. They are generally at least ten feet in length and seven feet tall at the shoulder, weighing upwards of 2,000 pounds.
