While touring around southern Africa, we made a quick stop at a game farm in Namibia owned by some family friends. They had a warthog named Canon that they had raised since he was a baby.  I don’t remember the story, but he was orphaned and raised by the farmers since he was a baby.  He was quite tame and very playful.  I had a thought to get him with me in some promotional shots.  But, Canon had a mind of his own.  So, all I got were outtakes including him chewing on my shoe. Now I understand why they say animals are hard to work with.  Here’s a small bit of me playing with him and trying to get him just to chill and hang out so I could film my piece.

    Nav’d over from your chewing on my shoe post, and yes, that video made me laugh, particularly the end. I can’t say I’d ever really thought about what the rest of the warthog looked like, just the face. No Jeffs were harmed in the filming of this clip, I hope?
