Chacoan peccaries are pig-like mammals with bristly, brown-gray fur, tough, leathery snouts and strong jaws and tusks for crushing seeds and slicing plant roots.

Young are generally born between September and December, but litters have been found almost year-round. Births have been linked to periods of food abundance and rainfall. The average number of embryos has been recorded as approximately 2.72. Females may leave the herd to give birth and then return afterwards. Newborns are precocial, able to run a few hours after birth. The pelage of the young resembles that of the adults.

The species has disappeared from large areas of the Argentine Chaco where its original range has been reduced by approximately 40%.
