This is one of the strangest looking animals we have ever seen.
The poor piglet has a severe craniofacial deformity resulting in a misshapen eyes and snout and what looks like a penis growing on its forehead.
The piglet was one of 18 piglets and truly is the runt of the litter, as the other 17 were born healthy.
On average a sow only gives birth to 10-14 piglets. It’s possible that the size of the litter contributed to its deformities. A sow only has a limited amount of resources to develop its embryos. And so this strange piglet might be the result of nutrient deficiency.
It was rejected by its mother, and refused to be fed by the farmer Tao Lu, from a bottle.
Mercifully, the piglet died after only a couple of days.
