Peccaries (also known as javelinas)  are medium-sized mammals. Peccaries are members of the Artiodactyl . They are found in the southwestern area of North America and throughout Central and South America. Peccaries usually measure between 90 and 130 cm in length (3 to 4 feet), and a full-grown adult usually weighs between about 20 and 40 kilograms (44 to 88 pounds).

These photos and videos were filmed in the Lake Corpus Christi State Park in February 2008.

Peccaries are omnivorous, and will eat small animals, although their preferred food consists of roots, grass, seeds, and fruit. Peccaries, indeed, are aggressive enough that they cannot be domesticated as they are likely to injure people.
