Teofil E. OROIAN, Rares G. OROIAN, Ioan PASCA, Elvira OROIAN and Ilie Covrig    

Abstract: In this study we present the practical method of age estimation by dentition in European wild boar Sus scrofa ferus. The dentition age estimation at this species is extremely important for establishing correlations between it and aspects of the body conformation and trophy value, in a strong linkage with the area bonitation, with the population genetic value and veterinary health status. We present the deciduous and permanent teeth aspect, at different ages: four months, six months, one year, one and a half years, two years, two and a half years, three years, five years, seven years, nine years and more. There are illustrated the aspects of incisors, canines, premolars and molars. Those aspects were confirmed by estimations made on 234 wild boars collected from Transylvania, in 2008 and 2009.
