pigs of the world

Just kidding.
I know there are a bunch of different kinds but how many are there? Domestic and wild.
For wild ones I can think of a few but I'm sure there are alot more.
Javelina
Collard Peccary
White Lipped Peccary
Russian Boar
Warthog
There are lots of domestics running around too but I don't know what the names of the breeds are. In Argentina there was one called a Cimaron but I don't even know what kind it is in English. It was a red pig, pretty big too.
Can someone name some of the different breeds?

Actually the Javelina (Collared Pecary) is not a hog or pig, they do not belong to the swine family.

Good site though........have always wanted to kill a wart hog........have something around to remind me of my ex-wife!
