Favorite thing: Giant Forest Hogs are found in Africa, mainly in the equatorial forests and grasslands west, west of the Rift Valley. There are a few scattered small populations northeast of Lake Victoria, and several scattered larger populations from Nigeria to Senegal. The giant forest hog prefers the dense shade of thickets and bushes. This suid ranges through a variety of forest types, including dry forests, humid lowland forests and montane forests
