Hermaphrodite pig born in Colombia
It doesn't happen every day, infact it's an extremely
rare occurrence, but in Colombia, in Bayunca near Cartagena a cattle farmer
discovered one of his piglets was hermaphrodite.
The pig, born with eleven brothers and sisters was discovered to have both
testicles and a vagina. "These cases happen rarely," the local vet told local
newspaper El Universal. "Usually piglets like this are still-born, because they
are dysfunctional. They are not able to generate offspring."
