    Hey everyone. Killed a young sow yesterday and when I retrieved her I noticed these 2 flaps of skin under her chin. Does anyone know what these are our have seen these before?
    Thanks

    NO! Not growths. You have one very cool hog. I have yet to see a feral one of these myself. You have a hog with wattles. These occur in a limited variety of breeds, the most common, I think is the red wattle hog. I realize yours isn't red, but check the link for a nifty example...

    I was afraid you were going to say that. Lol. Already butcher. And yes the hog was indeed red throughout the body. Should I have had him mounted? Still have his cape!

    Wow... never heard of such a critter.

    Speaking of odd hogs... we haven't seen any of Brian's famous-footed hooves in a while. M'be Brian slayed 'em all.

    That would have made an interesting mount, no doubt.
