Caption: Collared peccary. View of a collared peccary (Tayassu or Dicotyles tajacu) standing at a forest edge. The collared peccary is native to the Americas, from the southern USA to central South America. They live in areas with good plant cover, such as in forests and dense scrub. They are good swimmers, and enjoy wallowing. They are omnivorous, and eat a wide variety of food, including roots, herbs, fruits, worms and small vertebrates. They tend to live in small groups of around 20 animals, but larger herds have been known. Each group has a home territory which covers a few square kilometres. They may grow to around a metre in length. Photographed in Belize.
