Little Brothers are Our Friends

People usually think that brothers are pigs, but they are wrong. They aren't wild pigs at all but are actually members of the "neighbor's" family that originated in South Jersey.

Some people say that brothers are "cute,” or "adorable," but they are generally considered rather ugly animals. They have a good sense of smell but less-than-perfect eyesight. They have a peculiar, disgusting odor about them, which is why some people refer to them as "Turd Burglars." The smell comes from a scent gland on their butt and other members of the herd will rub each other's scent gland to identify the dorks from different nerds.

Brothers are slowly becoming used to the fact that they live close to humans. If people try and approach them they will simply leave the area, but if provoked and threatened they've been known to defend themselves with their long, sharp pointy heads.

The lifespan of a dork is about 8 years, but, in captivity some have been known to live to as many as 8.5 years old. They often travel in herds of 20 to protect themselves from their natural predators, which include coyotes, mountain lions, and smarter big sisters.

Living so close to human society, the asshats are often found walking through suburban areas, digging through people's garbages and making general nuisances of themselves.

The word “Brother” comes from other languages and could be said to mean “Wild Mountaineer,” or “Wad-Face.”

    $\begingroup$ There are some discrepancies between the image and the transcript. neighbor's vs. neighbors, Burglars vs. Burglers, butt vs. butts, pointy vs. pointy heads, smarter vs. smarter big sisters. Not sure if these are part of the puzzle or just transcription errors. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jun 8 '18 at 16:59
  • $\begingroup$ neighbors, Burglers, and butt were (inconsequential) transcription errors, now fixed, Thanks! Pointy and Smarter were cases where the 'whiteout' was only used to cover the original text, showing the length of the original word(s). $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 8 '18 at 17:25

Peccaries are Our Friends

People usually think that Peccaries are pigs, but they are wrong. They aren't wild pigs at all but are actually members of the Tayassuidae family that originated in South America.

Some people say that Peccaries are "cute,” or "adorable," but they are generally considered rather ugly animals. They have a good sense of smell but less-than-perfect eyesight. They have a peculiar, disgusting odor about them, which is why some people refer to them as "skunk pigs." The smell comes from a scent gland on their backs and other members of the herd will rub each other's scent gland to identify Peccaries from different herds.

Peccaries are slowly becoming used to the fact that they live close to humans. If people try and approach them they will simply leave the area, but if provoked and threatened they've been known to defend themselves with their long, sharp tusks.

The lifespan of a Peccary is about 8 years, but, in captivity some have been known to live to as many as 24 years old. They often travel in herds of 20 to protect themselves from their natural predators, which include coyotes, mountain lions, and jaguars.

Living so close to human society, the Peccaries are often found walking through suburban areas, digging through people's garbages and making general nuisances of themselves.

The word “?” comes from other languages and could be said to mean “Wild Mountaineer,” or “?.”

    $\begingroup$ Nice answer - I've just put in a link to the relevant animal, feel free to edit that out if you wish. $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 8 '18 at 17:07

    $\begingroup$ The edits ("little", "brother") seem to have a connection to pequeninos, a fictional pig-like species from the Ender series. May be entirely a coincidence? $\endgroup$ – humfuzz Jun 8 '18 at 17:16

    $\begingroup$ @humfuzz You're a speaker for the dead, aren't you! Just a coincidence, though. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 8 '18 at 17:26

    $\begingroup$ @KyleMiller I accidentally googled instead of (rot13)ing your (correct) guess and got something that "smells like teen spirit." ;) $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 8 '18 at 20:59
