We are excited to announce that a female warthog has recently joined us here at Colchester Zoo! Meet Margo! She transferred here from the Nerthlands in August and has settled in nicely to her new home.

Warthogs are one of the most distinctive of all wild pigs. They are also very vocal, producing a range of grunts, growls, snorts and squeals.

Margo has also recently met our male Moja and the two seem quite taken with one another, with keepers often seeing them cuddled up together! It is hoped that the duo will becoming a breeding pair in the near future.

Why not stop by their enclosure at the Edge of Africa
