Pigs and maybe hippos. Javalinas are peccaries, which are a separate family from common pigs, because of anatomical differences. This is why the javalina is also known as the collared peccary.

      We scored pelage coloration of pigs and peccaries and matched them to socioecological variables to assess the relative strengths of protective coloration and signaling in driving coat coloration. Independent variables were gleaned from 9 books and 2 websites Pigs, peccaries, and hippos. International Union for Conservation of Nature and Cited by: 1. Artiodactyls are diverse and successful hoofed mammals, represented by nearly two hundred living species of pigs, peccaries, hippos, camels, deer, sheep, cattle, giraffes, and other even-toed ungulates. In the recent years, a tremendous amount of research has been conducted on this important order.

    You probably holler at them when they come rooting around in your yard. But how much do you really know about the javelina?Author: Jen Woolnough.

Pigs, hogs and peccaries are all members of the order Artiodactyla, or the even-toed ungulates. Other members of the order include giraffes, hippopotamuses and musk deer.

The eight genera of pigs and hogs, divided into 16 species, are all members of the Suidae family, while peccaries are members of the Tayassuidae family. The Wild Pig, Peccary, and Hippo TAG supports the work of the IUCN Specialist Groups for Wild Pigs, Peccaries, and Hippos (once covered under a single Specialist Group, but now split into separate entities).

Artiodactyls are diverse and successful hoofed mammals, represented by nearly two hundred living species of pigs, peccaries, hippos, camels, deer, sheep, cattle, giraffes, and other even-toed. The 21 species of pigs and peccaries (but see Chapter 1 in this book for an updated classification of Suidae and Tayassuidae families) do have one thing in common: all show remarkable ecological.
