QUESTION:

Why do warthogs like to roll in mud?

 

ANSWER:

Warthogs, along with a few other species such as elephants, rhinos and buffalo, enjoy wallowing in the mud to reduce their body temperature. The mud also acts as a protection layer for sunburn and relief from insect bites. After a long wallow in the mud, these animals normally find a rubbing post for a good and proper scratch. Watch the video of the Shayamanzi warthog enjoying the mud.
