The Heude's pig (Sus bucculentus), also known as the Indochinese warty pig or Vietnam warty pig, is a species of even-toed ungulate in the family Suidae. It is found in Laos and Vietnam. It is virtually unknown and was feared extinct, until the discovery of a skull from a recently killed individual in the Annamite Range, Laos, in 1995. Recent evidence has suggested that the Heude's pig may be identical to (and consequently a synonym of) wild boars from Indochina east of the Mekong.
