Behind the Scenes
Universe Star Trek Universe

Targs are non-sapient mammaloid creatures which resemble Earth's boars but possess several spikes on their heads and backs. These aggressive beasts are native to the Klingon homeworld of Qo'noS and are commonly hunted, domesticated for food or kept as pets by Klingons.

Targs greatly resemble two other creatures domesticated by Klingons, namely the warrigul and the Jackal Mastiff. It seems more than likely that these creatures do not represent three different species, but rather three different breeds or subspecies of the same species.
