Guinea Hogs, a critically endangered breed, were widespread, and descriptions of them varied. Generally, the hogs were small, weighing 100-300 pounds, and black or bluish-black in color. Though the Guinea Hog would greatly benefit from additional research and description, it is clear that the breed is genetically distinct from improved breeds of hogs and merits conservation. Like other traditional lard-type breeds, however, the Guinea Hog faces great obstacles to its conservation.

The Choctaw is an American breed that descends from Spanish stock brought to the Americas beginning in the 1500s. Native Americans, European settlers, and a succession of other peoples in the Southeast used Spanish hogs for over three hundred years.

Ossabaw Island Hogs: Early explorers brought livestock to the Americas beginning in the 1500s, including pigs that escaped or were deliberately set free in the New World. These pigs were the foundation for the historic populations of pigs, both domestic and feral, in the southern United States. One of these is the Ossabaw, a feral breed that is found on Ossabaw Island, off the coast of Georgia near Savannah.

Spanish hogs were used by Native Americans, European settlers, and a succession of other peoples in the Southeast for over three hundred years. When the Choctaw and other Native Americans first migrated from the deep South to the Oklahoma Territory in the early 1800s, they took their animals with them, and this was the beginning of the Oklahoma Choctaw hog population.

The Choctaw breed is critically rare, with an estimated population of only 100-150 animals. The Choctaw faces substantial obstacles to survival. Nevertheless, the breed is a high conservation priority because it has qualities which may be of importance in the future.

"The only way to save a rhinoceros is to save the environment in which it lives, because there’s a mutual dependency between it and millions of other species of both animals and plants."

*WATCH* The name Tunis describes this American breed’s connections to foundation stock from Tunisia in North Africa. The Tunis is a very docile dual purpose breed that has been selected primarily for meat production. Market lambs are economical to raise and produce high quality carcasses with excellent meat to bone ratios. The fleece is medium-grade wool which turns white during processing. Tunis sheep are good grazers and easy keepers, allowing them to thrive in forage based production…
