Abstract

Sixteen lower mandibles of bearded pig (Sus barbatus) were examined to determine their age. Eruption pattern and surface wear were used to classify specimens into infant, juvenile, subadult, adult and old adult. Teeth sizes were used to differentiate between temporary and permanent teeth. Based on these criteria, four of the specimens were classified as juvenile, one as subadult, seven as adults and four as old adults.
