A fleshy caruncle hanging from the face = Wattle??

A collection of hair on the cheek = Beard??

A wattle is correct but not a beard in this case.

:D :dance: LQ :gflower: :clap: :clap: :clap: You are correct.

Alias

A distinct lack of Beauty – Warthogs are not the most beautiful of the animals that can be found on the African Savannah.

A fleshy caruncle hanging from the face - Warthogs have facial wattles from there the English name

A collection of hair on the cheek - Warthogs have tufts of hair on their tails and cheeks

A peculiar habit - Warthogs have the peculiar habit of kneeling on the front knees while feeding and foraging in a localised area.

A place of safety belonging to – A hole in the ground occupied by animals

Could be part of the traditional region of Ringerike - Hole is a municipality in Buskerud county, Norway

Or a traditional article of Korean black clothing - a GAT or a hat is a traditional Korean black hat with wide rims

But closer to home one of the 13 will let you guess the Alias if you still think of the place of safety – Afrikaans is one of the 13 official languages and hole is gat in Afrikaans which could be occupied by animals

= Vlakvarksegat which is the alias of the forum member.
