Sus cebifrons
Cebu warty pig (Sus cebifrons cebifrons), also known as the Cebu warty pig, was a subspecies of pig native to the island of Cebu, in the Philippines. Until its extinction, this animal had distinctive characteristics that differentiated it from other species of pigs. Here is an overview:

Morphology: The Cebu warty pig was medium in size compared to other pig species. Its body was robust and compact, with short legs and a relatively short tail. The males were usually larger than the females.

Fur: It had grayish fur that covered its body. Although the color of the coat could vary, especially depending on the environment and local conditions, the general shade was consistent with the wooded environment in which it lived.

Facial Features: One of the most distinctive features of the Cebu warty pig was the facial warts. It developed prominent warts around its snout and forehead, giving it a unique appearance. This characteristic contributed to its common name of "warty pig."

Habitat and Distribution: This subspecies inhabited the tropical and bamboo forests of the island of Cebu. Cebu warty pig populations were limited to this specific geographic area in the Philippines.

Extinction: Tragically, the Cebu warty pig was declared extinct in the year 2000. The main reason behind its extinction was habitat destruction, a common problem affecting many species around the world due to human expansion and related activities. with the alteration of the natural environment.

The extinction of the Cebu warty pig highlights the importance of conservation and habitat preservation to prevent the loss of valuable and unique species.
