Warthog

I’m convinced that this porcine being (Phacochoerus africanus) was the inspiration for the creature in Beauty and the Beast.  I don’t think there’s a more homely creature in all of Africa, though the wildebeest would have to be runner-up in the animal anti-beauty contest.  Bad skin, bad teeth, and every day’s a bad hair day!

It even has an unattractive–though descriptive–English name.  Poor warthog!
