A mixed-breed mother pig gave birth to five piglets in Yunlin, Taiwan last week, one of them coming out with two mouths and two noses, according to Apple Daily.
Weighing around one kilogram, the sweet li’l freak had survived for two days and was said to be comparatively thinner and smaller than its siblings. It could neither walk, stand on its own nor suckle, so it was artificially fed.
The pig feeder, who’d been raising hogs for 30 years, said that two years ago he’d similarly met a deformed piglet with two heads and eight legs, although it died shortly after its birth.
A professor of the Department of Veterinary Medicine at National Chiayi University said that the deformed piggies are a result of problems in cell division. Pigs with deformities don’t commonly live long as they don’t have the ability to eat on their own, so pig feeders tend not to raise them and let them die naturally.
According to the report, some collectors in Chiayi City were willing to bid for this strange piglet and both parties had reached an agreement, but the purchase price was undisclosed.
Now don’t even get us started on this human-faced pig monstrosity that made headlines in Laos this week.
