|Bornean Bearded Pig|
|Common Name||Bearded Pig|
|Range||Southeast Asia—Sumatra, Borneo, the Malay Peninsula.|
The Bornean bearded pig, (Sus barbatus), also known ambiguously as the bearded pig, is a species of pig. It can be recognized by its prominent beard. It also sometimes has tassels on its tail. It is found in Southeast Asia—Sumatra, Borneo, the Malay Peninsula, and various smaller islands—where it inhabits rainforests and mangrove forests. The bearded pig lives in a family. It can reproduce from the age of 18 months, and can be cross-bred with other species in the family Suidae. The San Diego Zoo was the first zoo in the Western Hemisphere to breed them. As of January 2011, it is also held in London Zoo, Hellabrunn Zoo, Gladys Porter Zoo, Lowry Park Zoo, National Zoo of Malaysia (Zoo Negara), Zoo Taiping, and Singapore Zoo.
