Walking up from the children’s zoo area, you will pass the warthogs. If you’re lucky, they will be resting near the viewing area; sometimes though they seem to prefer watching over the Australian animals in the next enclosure. While they are not the most attractive animal in the zoo, are you going to tell them that given those tusks?

Warthogs are the second Oakland Zoo animal that younger visitors will use a different name for, again the result of Disney’s Lion King: Pumba is a warthog.
