Zookeepers at the Oakland Zoo are playing matchmaker and they say "Simon" the warthog is in his prime and ready to mate.

They've set up two lucky ladies to entice him -- one was flown in from Atlanta and the other from Florida.

Both were hand-picked because they have ideal genetic traits like large warts and strong tusks.

Dates with Simon are simple. They involve a lot of foraging for roots and wallowing in the mud.
