Swine is a name properly applicable to the domesticated pig, but also includes its wild relatives.
There is a small pig (Sus andamanensis), important to the food of the people, and a wild cat (Paradoxurus tytleri); but the bats(sixteen species) and rats(thirteen species) constitute nearly three-fourths of the known mammals.
Deer do not extend into New Guinea, in which island the genus Sus appears to have its eastern limit.
The Indian wild boar (Sus cristatus) is slightly taller than Sus scrota, standing some 30 to 40 in.
