Fen boars (Q."Mottúror") were smaller than their forest-dwelling relatives (see common boars), who can gorge on nuts all autumn. However, they made for good hunting and tasty eating. Males could be dangerous if cornered, lashing out with the long tusks they normally employ for digging in the mud for tasty roots, as well as for grubbing out rotten meat. Even more than other pigs, fen boars enjoyed berries, insects, and fish in addition to their normal vegetarian diet.
