The Visayan warty pig is a dark grey color, and the body is sparsely covered with bristly hairs. These pigs are best recognized by the white stripe which runs over the bridge of the nose behind the mouth.
Although called a warty pig, facial warts of this species are small and only found in males. Males have 3 pairs of warts on the face. They protect eyes and face from the tusks of other males during the fights.
