The Forest-pig of Central Africa


AS will be remembered, the singular and interesting forest-pig, Hylochoerus meinertzhageni, which appears to be an intermediate link between the true Sus and the aberrant Phacochœrus was first mentioned and named by my friend Mr. Oldfield Thomas in these pages (NATURE, vol. lxx., p. 577, 1904). I believe, therefore, that some further information which widens considerably its range may prove of interest to readers of NATURE.
