Oliver's warty pig (Sus oliveri), or Mindoro warty pig is a small species of pig which can only be found on the island of Mindoro in the central Philippines. This species previously treated to be a subspecies of S. philippensis, was shown to be morphologically and genetically different.[2][3][4]

This species is heavily hunted and is extremely rare.
