Celebochoerus phillipiensis, also known as the shovel-tusked pig, is a species of giant suid artiodactyl that originally existed during the Pliocene and Pleistocene in Sulawesi, Indonesia, and the middle Pleistocene of Luzon, in the Philippines, and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and introduced throughout modern Indonesia and Philippines to help boost biodiversity. The shovel-tusked pig is a giant among pigs, growing to be around 210 centimetres in length, 100 centimetres in height, and weigh between 200 and 300 kilograms. It is a social herd-dwelling omnivore that feeds mainly on grasses, leaves, soft-nuts, fruits, insects, and carrion. The conservation status of the shovel-tusked pig is Near Threatened due to habitat loss, however, conservationists are trying trying to protect shovel-tusked pigs by protecting their rainforest habitats.
