Dutch biologist Marc van Roosmalen has expanded the list of known peccary species to four following his "discovery" of the giant peccary, aka Pecari maximus, in the basin of the Rio Aripuanã in the south eastern Amazon.

Wtf is a peccary?
Why is Lester writing this?
"16 years for keeping orphaned monkeys in a refuge"?
What's going on?
So basically as the rest of us find out about this species, the locals could tell ya what it tastes like? Talk about being one step ahead....they have the right to be more smug than Mac fanboys...
My peccary doesn't smell
Why, doesn't it have a nose?
If you crossed it with an armadillo, would you get a peccadillo?
Has anyone seen my jacket?
wtf is a peccary? I'll tell you.
It's a suid.
I couldn't resist...
"My peccary doesn't have a nose." "Really, how does he smell?" "He doesn't!"
anon always delivers
I still don't care though.
Oscar Wilde confusion.
" and the fact that it doesn't smell. "
Oscar Wilde was once on a train, sharing a compartment with a rather posh woman.

Who needs mates like that?
Not to be confused
with the giant scentless pessary.
But how to you shove it in there?
Visions of a well lubricated yet scentless pig being inserted into cavities .. ahh El Reg delivers again!
I'm not surprised it's endangered if it lacks "rooting behaviour"...
[Sorry, that one only works in Oz/NZ]
@ Nick Pettefar
Sorry, your impecable jacket has been burned, along with the armoire.
He was keeping monkeys in cages? So that's the IT angle, is it? Why didn't you just say he was running a support desk for Microsoft?
Cross breed it with a banana and a Dachsund and you get a banana daccary?
