A two-headed pig has been born in China.
This little piggy -one of 10 in a litter -was born with polycephaly, a rare condition in which an extra, conjoined head is formed when a fertilized egg fails to divide successfully.
Owner of the special little piggy,farmer Du Gensheng said,
“When it tries to suckle the milk, it hesitates about which mouth to suckle the nipples. Sometimes one mouth wants to suck this nipple, while the other mouth tries another nipple, and then both failed”
The pig was born in Nanchang, capital of eastern China’s Jiangxi Province. It’s not the first polycephalic pig to be born in China this year. Another pig with two heads was born April 10th in a village in Jiujiang.
Earlier this month, China stuck a trade agreement that would facilitate the importation of $73.6 million worth of British pig semen.
Although China a leading producer and consumer of pork, it’s pig stock is of poor quality. Enter British hogs, whose semen will hopefully help produce a fitter, healthier, more productive breed of the other white meat.
Here is a look at the other animals who have made it to the news for being born with eccentricities,
