The Warthog is a playable mascot in Crossy Road.
The Warthog appearance resembles that of the real life wild boar. It has some brown hair going to it's back. It also has 2 pig-like ears. It's got a big nose, and 2 horns. It has a furry tail, and brown-black pig-like feet and makes a warthog sound.
The Savanna serves as the terrain for the Warthog. Like all the other Savanna characters, the vehicles on the roads are jeeps with tourists in touring jeeps taking photos with flashes. Sometimes the player encounters a Meerkat. When the player approaches it, it begins to tremble and whimpers, as if frightened. There are two enemies in the savanna terrain. In the rivers, there are crocodiles. These are brown rather than the green ones of other terrains. If the warthog retreats or tarries for too long, a vulture (rather than the usual eagle) snatches it.
How to ObtainEdit
- The Warthog resembles Pumbaa from The Lion King.
- The Meerkat and the Warthog are references to Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King.
- Whenever the Meerkat starts trembling, it is a reference to the Lion King 1 1/2, when Timon and Pumbaa first meet as they were frightened of each other. When you're playing as the Ghost,the same trembling actions happen to the Grave Digger.
- Warthogs are found in grassland, savanna, and woodland in sub-Saharan Africa and are a type of wild pig. They can exist in very dry climates, able to endure high temperatures and go without drinking water for long periods. This is because the warthog can retain its body water content longer than normal, and use this water for cooling. This water conservation mechanism is similar to the one present in camels.
- The meerkat are small carnivores belonging to the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, in much of the Namib Desert in Namibia and southwestern Angola, and in South Africa. They can also exist in very dry climates. They are excellent diggers and live underground. Meerkats take turns at being on sentry duty and are well-known for their upright stance as they keep an eye out for danger such as birds of prey or snakes. They live in colonies of up to 30 and also help out with baby sitting duty.
- The Crossy Road vulture most resembles a Hooded Vulture or a Lappet-faced (Nubian) Vulture. Both species have no feathers on their pink heads and pink or red necks.
- The Crossy Road savanna crocodiles in the rivers are most likely to be Nile Crocodiles, which are widespread throughout sub-Saharan Africa and the largest freshwater predator in Africa. The adults are a dark bronze colour and the Crossy Road savanna crocodiles reflect this colouring.
