Meet Little Piggy Two-Nose. That’s not the pig’s name, but what else would you call a pig who was born with a very unique double-sided face? That’s right, a pig with two functioning snouts was born on a Chinese farm, and now the farmer who helped raise the little porker is hoping that she will become a tourist attraction. While she’s not as adorable as the four-eared cat, she’d make a perfect pet for the baby with two faces.
“We knew something was different because her head was so large we had to help when her mother gave birth,” said pig farmer Bai Xuejin, who birthed the piglet on his farm in Zangjia, Jilin Province, China. “I’ve been raising pigs for 15 years and I’ve never seen anything like this before. Both mouths function normally and so she eats and drinks through both of them which means she gets through a lot more food than her brothers and sisters.”
That said, don’t worry about the fat little piglet’s future. No matter how much food she eats with her two mouths, she won’t become dinner. Said Bai of his prized piglet, “She is too special to end up on a plate.” Bai and his family actually hand-fed and hand-raised the piglet, who due to her condition could not suckle normally, until she could eat solid foods on her own.
