Southern Warthog

Filed under: San Diego Zoo — Tags: — washaw @ 6:00 am

The southern warthog may not appear to be as beautiful as some of the other animals at the San Diego Zoo. But the warthogs are remarkable for their strength, intelligence and ability to adapt and survive. Keeper Leslie looks after the warthogs with a wide range of duties that includes food prepartion, administer medications, observation, keeping records and cleaning their enclosure. The last picture below shows Leslie in the service shed behind the warthog exhibit. Take a couple of extra minutes on your next visit, say hello to Leslie if you see her and maybe you will fall in love with the warthog just like the zoo staff.



  1. Warthogs are strange looking creatures. Hmmm, his mother loves him. Look at that sweet face.
