Peccaries Near The Tuichi River In The Amazon (08/21/19) — Image by kenne

Like a pig, it has a snout ending in a cartilaginous disc and eyes that are small relative to its head. Also, like a pig, it uses only the middle two digits for walking, although, unlike pigs, the other toes may be altogether absent. Finally, its stomach is not ruminating, although it has three chambers and is more complex than pigs.
Peccaries are omnivores and eat insects, grubs, and occasionally small animals, although their preferred foods consist of roots, grasses, seeds, fruit, and cacti—particularly prickly pear. They are found throughout Central and South America and the southwestern United States. — Source: Wikipedia
