Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Giant Peccary is a possible fourth species of peccary, discovered in Brazil in 2000 by the Dutch naturalist Marc van Roosmalen. In 2003, he and German natural history filmmaker Lothar Frenz succeeded in filming a group and gathering material, which later would serve as the type. Though recently discovered by science it has been known to locals as Caitetu Munde, which means "great peccary which lives in pairs." It was formally described in 2007, but the scientific evidence for its species status has later been questioned, which also is one of the reasons for it being evaluated as data deficient by IUCN.show more
