Hi, this post has been really helpful. I’ve been watching my hogs on camera since May and whilst enjoying their antics have decided to study them a bit closer and try to identify individuals. I’m interested in knowing how many visit and who is a regular!
I’ve been using the lighter / white spines and writing a description as to where they are on each hog which is time consuming and quite hard to describe! I’m no good at drawing but will try and study the faces to those I recognise easily now and add that to my description and my screen shot ID gallery!
I’m hoping that this will help me to clarify if I have doubled up on some individuals as I have recorded 13 so far which seems rather a lot, although I’ve had 5 at once one night. Thanks for the pointers.
