Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. The capital city is Hamilton.

Bermuda was originally discovered in 1503 by Spanish explorer Juan de Bermúdez, after whom the islands are named.

The wild boar (Sus scrofa), also known as the wild swine, Eurasian wild pig, or simply wild pig, is a suid native to much of Eurasia, North Africa, and the Greater Sunda Islands.
