Belarus: Wild Boar

Yesterday I got a postcard from Belarus.

It shows a Wild Boar. The Wild Boar is a suid, which was actually native to Eurasia. The human also introduced it to North America and Australia, making it today one of the widest-ranging mammals in the World. It the ancestor of most domestic pig breeds and was used as big-game animal for millennia.
