The Babirusa is a unique species of wild pig native to the Indonesian islands of Sulawesi, Togian, Sula, and Buru. It is characterized by its long, upward-curving canine teeth that can grow through the top of its snout, resembling large tusks.
These tusks continue to grow throughout its life, and they are used for defense, attracting mates, and fighting other males. Babirusas are omnivorous and inhabit various forest habitats. They are known for their distinctive appearance and are considered a charismatic species in the animal kingdom.
