Males are slightly bigger, with the comparable body weights for adults of each sex as follows: 150-170 lb for females; and 200-220 lb for males. Exceptional specimens have been reported to exceed 500 lb. In all instances of these exceptional weights, the animals were males. Adult feral hogs average 5-6 ft in length (tip of nose to end of tail) and 2.5-3 ft in shoulder height. Exceptionally large males can be over 7 ft in length and over 3 ft in shoulder height.
