Pig

Pig kill 1sq

Pigs root in fallen logs hunting for food, including insects and small animals.

Rotten logs are a good food source for pigs, which eat both plant and animal-based food (are omniverous). Pigs will eat the invertebrates and other small animals that find good habitat in logs.

Matt Downer who took this photo followed pig tracks along a logging road to a skid site near the Tantragee Saddle behind Nelson, where there was much rooting sign, indicating the pigs returned quite often.
