Wild boar ringtone


Wild boar, also wild pig, (Sus scrofa) is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae. The species includes many subspecies. It is the wild ancestor of the domestic pig, an animal with which it unreservedly hybridises. Wild boar are native across much of Northern and Central Europe, the Mediterranean Region (counting North Africa’s Atlas Mountains) and much of Asia as far south as Indonesia. Populations have also been artificially introduced in some parts of the world, most notably the Americas and Australasia, principally for hunting. Somewhere else, populations have also become established after escapes of wild boar from captivity. Sus_scrofa.mp3 (394 downloads)

Garganey ringtone


The Garganey (Anas querquedula) is a small dabbling duck. It breeds in much of Europe and western Asia, but is strictly migratory, with the entire population moving to southern Africa and Australasia in winter, where large flocks can occur. This species was first described by Linnaeus in 1758 under its current scientific name. Like other small ducks such as the Ordinary Teal, this species rises easily from the water with a quick twisting wader-like flight. Anas_querquedula.mp3 (82 downloads)
