Two snouted pig avoids the chop

This little piggy certainly will not go to market says her owner Bai Xuejin, from Zhangjia in the Jilin province, in China.

The piglet was born with two functioning mouths. She eats and drinks through both of them.

“We knew something was different because her head was so large we had to help when her mother gave birth. I’ve been raising pigs for 15 years and I’ve never seen anything like this before, “ Xuejin said.

The piglet could not suckle its mother because of its unique facial figure, so it had to be raise  by hand until it was old enough to eat solid food.

Xuejin says he is planning on saving the piglet from the chop and putting her on show at his farm because people are fascinated by her. “She is too special to end up on a plate,”  Xuejin said.
