  • The Facial Musculature of the Suoidea: 'The snout and rhinariuml are of importance in the activities of pigs (Suidae) and peccaries (Tayassuidae). In the variety of foraging behaviors exhibited by suoids, this complex serves as the means of force application, a manipulatory tool, and a tactile instrument. This study of the morphology of the rhinarium and the muscles which work it is part of a larger study of suoid cranial anatomy undertaken to give insights into the nature of the suoid adaptive radiation.'
