Several wild razorback boars have been featured in Lost and The Lost Experience. Wild boars can reach up to 440 lb (200 kg) and can be up to 6 feet (1.8 m) long. If surprised or cornered, they may become aggressive and can cause injury with their tusks. However, this is quite rare and usually only occurs if a sow feels the need to defend her piglets.


On the Island

Native to the Island

The boars on Lost may or may not be native to the Island. Although razorback boar are not native to islands in the South Pacific, crews of ships would often transport them to newly discovered islands as a preemptive source of food should the island be colonized later. The time between discovery and colonization could be many years, giving four boars (two male and two females) the opportunity to have multiple litters before colonists arrived. Wild chickens were also transported in the same way.
