Brief About Darrang District
Hope for endangered Pygmy Hogs
July 8, 2005

There is good news for nature lovers, pygmy hogs (tiny wild pigs) feared to have disappeared from forests are not extinct.

Known to be present in very few numbers only in two wildlife sanctuaries of Assam in the entire world, the pygmy hog may be one of the prized members once again in the Bornodi wildlife sanctuary.

Seven nests believed to that of the hogs were found early this year, raising prospects of presence of the shy tiny creatures in this remote but picturesque 26 sq km sanctuary stretching along the foothills of Bhutan.

Located near the Mangaldoi township is the sanctuary, which is otherwise known among researchers as the home of another most endangered species in the world, the slow loris.

"Due to its remoteness and deplorable road condition we have very few tourists with only research people mostly from Southern India occasionally visiting the park", says Mangaldoi wildlife division divisional forest officer M Momin.

Excited over the prospect of the discovery of the nests, Momin claims that the forest department examined all aspects before coming to the conclusion that those belonged to pygmy hogs.

Although the habitats of wild boar and the pygmy hog look almost the same, the shrub by which the nests are made are different, he says.
