Queen of the Warthogs

Published
Queen of the Warthogs
In Africa, the warthog is a constant target for hungry predators, and for one warthog mother, "Half Tusk," the stakes couldn't be higher. She's lost at least half of her litter to predators over the past four years. This year she is preparing to defend her brood from the prowess of lions, leopards and cheetahs looking to make her offspring their next meal. But she can't watch them all the time, and the babies will have to face some challenges alone in order to survive.
