|Buru Babirusa||Nexon Game|
Buru Babirusa is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Buru Babirusa has striking, violet eyes which peer over red, half-frame glasses. Her gray hair is long and wild, with four curved, white locks that represent the real life animal's four tusks. Her bangs are dotted with puce spots of varying sizes, and a pair of gray ears with reddish brown tips protrude from her head. Her tail is straight and medium in length.
She dresses in a long, white labcoat, befitting of the nickname "Doctor Babirusa". Beneath the coat, she wears a "seifuku"-style uniform which is purplish brown in coloration, held together by a red ribbon. Her legs are covered in gray stockings with puce spots, matching her bangs, as well as a pair of flats.
In Real Life
The Buru babirusa is a beast of many names, also known as the Moluccan babirusa, golden babirusa and hairy babirusa. Until 2002, all babirusas were considered to be part of the same species, although since then a designation has been made between different members of the genus.
On the general level, the babirusa is a unique animal native to a remote location resembling a wild pig. The name "babirusa" means "pig deer" in the Malagasy language, referring to their set of four unique tusks, protruding through the skin of their snouts, somewhat resembling antlers. Only male babirusas have the full set of four, however the females still boast the lower pair.
