Dire boars, also known as giant boars[3][5] or elotheridae,[5] were a type of unusually large and aggressive boar.[4]

BehaviorEdit

Unlike ordinary pigs, dire boars were vicious and would attack any creature that approached.[5]

CombatEdit

Dire boars typically tried to charge their opponents and gore them with their tusks.[4][1]

HabitatsEdit

Dire boars were known to inhabit the moors, deciduous forests, and coniferous forests of the Moonshae Isles.[6] In the Shining South they were known to inhabit the Channath Vale and the Forest of Amtar.[7] They could also be found in Chult.[8]

EcologyEdit

Giant boars, much like regular boars, traveled in groups known as "sounders."[1] The number of giant boars in a sounder varied, but oftentimes it totaled up to eight.[5]

DietEdit

Giant boars were an omnivorous species.[1][5]

RelationshipsEdit

Some humanoid races were known to domesticate dire boars, such as orcs and dwarves, the latter of which referred to their dire boar mounts as "thundertusks." However, domestication was a difficult process, and after being domesticated dire boars were still known to be quite fierce and dangerous.[1]

Notable Dire BoarsEdit

TriviaEdit

Dire boars were a favored animal of the deity Bahgtru.[10]
