A warthog is a creature found in Great Britain, and possibly elsewhere. Muggles are aware of this creature, and it is classed as non-magical.

It is likely that a "warthog" is a synonymous term that can be used to refer to a warty hog. If that is the case, this creature is mentioned in the Grade 3 W.O.M.B.A.T. test, as the warty hog which, according to legend, led Rowena Ravenclaw to "a cliff by a lake" in a dream of hers. This is allegedly gave the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry both its name and location.[3]

In 1992, Rubeus Hagrid stated that he would like to own a Warthog.
