Pumba and its offspring (22)
References in pop culture
Fictional warthog characters are common in popular culture worldwide, including Pumbaa from The Lion King, Reynold from Jungle Jam and Friends: The Radio Show!, Bebop from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Herbert from 64 Zoo Lane, Wally in Rampage: Total Destruction, Crabs the warthog doll from Cow and Chicken, the crime-fighting Wonder Wart-Hog, and Ms. Mucus from Camp Lazlo. The presumed ugliness of warthogs is the basis for other references, such as the Foxtrot comic strip and in other cartoons such as The Far Side and provides the title for the long-lasting Finnish humor magazine Pahkasika ("Warthog" in Finnish). There is a series of children's mystery books featuring Bill the Warthog, a trench coat wearing detective (including "Full Metal Trench Coat" and "Quest for the Temple of Truth".)
The A-10 Thunderbolt II airplane is nicknamed "Warthog" - as is a vehicle in both the Twisted Metal and Halo video game series. Warthogs themselves appear as a form of transport in the video game Crash Bandicoot.
"Wart Hog" is a song by punk rock group The Ramones, on their album Too Tough to Die, and British late-sixties trio Cream had a song Pressed Rat and Warthog on the album Wheels of Fire.
The Winston-Salem minor league baseball team from North Carolina, USA is named the "Warthogs", inspired in the early 1990s by the arrival of warthogs at the North Carolina Zoo.

To get rid of the partial piglet I used the following steps:
a) slight rotate ( clockwise ), then
b) crop off legs on the left
After that I did a small adjustment in colour, contrast and cripness [ the three Cs ]
