Gratitude Monday - Warthog Dreams Edition

The warthog in repose

I got to pet a warthog at the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary in Swaziland.
Each night four warthogs came to the campfire at the sanctuary and bedded down for the night. They were so used to humans they could be petted.
I did.
It was a dream come true, and for it I am grateful.

I imagine their hair was pretty coarse or am I wrong?

It's a lovely warthog, i'm glad they were friendly.

It was fairly coarse, Tabor. But I still really enjoyed it.

Messymimi, warthogs are the best.

Oh, scritch scritch scritch. I have not exactly studied warthogs deeply, but I didn't realize they were so very hog-like.

They really are, Mary Anne. And I found these quite snuggly-looking.
