A piglet born with a face resembling that of a monkey has been attracting locals in China.
The mutant animal was among 15 piglets born on a farm in Guizhou Province on December 3. Interestingly, it was one of the eight that survived, NetEase reported.
According to the outlet, experts speculate environmental pollution as one cause of the piglet’s genetic mutation.
With its protruding tongue and other deformities, the piglet relies on bottle feeding.
The piglet is taken care of by a farmer named Lin.

There’s also one with two faces and three ears.
Another has two mouths and two noses.
