The babirusa's defining characteristic is its large tusks, which curl all the way back to the face and create a loop. The 2nd pair of tusks are nice compliment.

Safari Ltd. Babirusa #100102 Review:
One of the standout features of this figure is the tusks. The large tusks curl all the way back to the face, creating a loop that is a defining characteristic of the babirusa tusks. The other tusks are also well-formed and a good match for the larger tusks.
The texture of the figure is generally smooth, with some wrinkles on the sides of the body that add to its realistic appearance. The solid grey back and sides of the figure are eye-catching, while the pinkish belly adds a nice touch of contrast.
Overall, the Safari Ltd. Babirusa figure is a good representation of this unique and fascinating animal.
The babirusa, also known as the deer-pig, is a fascinating and unusual animal that is native to the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. It is a member of the pig family, but its appearance is more reminiscent of a deer than a pig. The babirusa has long, thin legs and a slender body, with a coat of wiry hair that ranges in color from reddish-brown to gray. However, its most distinctive feature is its tusks, which are long and curved and grow through the top of the snout, rather than below it like in other pigs. The tusks can grow up to 17 inches long and are used for fighting during mating season.
