The Hog Badger, Arctonyx collaris is a medium-sized, up to 70cm long, terrestrial mammal with a medium length brown hair, stocky body, white throat, two black stripes on elongated white face and pink pig-like snout.

The Hog Badger is distributed in Southeast Asia tropical rainforests. It appearances resembles the more common Eurasian Badger, but is smaller in size. However the claws on the front feet are considerably bigger, due to that fact that it has more natural predators than the Eurasian Badger. Other features that distinguish the Hog Badger from the latter are a longer, white hairs covered tail and white claws on their front feet.

The Hog Badger is an omnivore species. Its diet consist mainly of plants, fruits, roots and animal material. The Hog Badger is also nocturnal, preferring to forage around the undergrowth under the cover of darkness.

Widespread throughout its large range, the Hog Badger is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
