A piglet born last week with two snouts, two mouths and two tongues is turning into a lot of ham.
Farmer Ramón Aguilar said he has never seen anything like it in all his years of raising pigs.
The “mutant pig” comes from a farm in the rural area of Ucacha, in Argentina’s Córdoba province, Jam Press reports.
“It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a piglet like this, that’s why I was so surprised,” Aguilar was quoted as saying by local media.
“I have seen similar cases with cows, but never with pigs. That’s why it seems so rare to me.”
Aguilar said the little stinker, which does not appear to have a name, is “breathing well” through its four nostrils and appears to be in good health.
A veterinarian will check the pig in the coming days, Aguilar noted.
This farrowing pig is not the first unusual pig to attract global attention. A piglet with three eyes and two snouts was born in China in 2016.
A young pig named Mara Clara, who had two heads, two snouts and three eyes, left villagers in the Philippines squealing in 2019.
And the small Spanish village of Bertoa in the Galicia region went wild over a piglet born with three eyes, two snouts and two brains in 2017.
