  • Move during early morning and late afternoon during winter month. During the warmer months, they are primarily nocturnal... moving mostly at night.

  • Have poor eyesight but a sharp sense of smell

  • Will defend themselves with their sharp tusks, if cornered

  • Are classed as a game animal in TX. and may be hunted with a license during the hunting season
