A Babirusa Offering
Things are non-stop busy right now, so here is a painting of a babirusa from That’s Not My Name as a humble offering and thank you for being awesome.
Here is some information on the babirusa, taken directly from my book:
Babirusas are wild pigs native to the Indonesian islands. Its Indonesian name “babirusa” translates into “pig-deer”. They can be found in the tropical forest, and are omnivores but feed mainly on fruit. Males have tusks that are formed from their canine teeth, and if not worn down the tusks can grow long enough to pierce the animal’s skull. Babirusas are gifted swimmers and have been known to travel across wide bodies of water to reach small islands.
