They have a combined weight of a small car, eat a mountain of food every day and could provide enough food to feed a small army.

Britain’s fattest pigs were named today as a pair of crossbreed Gloucester Old Spot/Large White pigs from a Cornish farm.

Marjorie and Boris, whose combined weight is more than three quarters of a tonne, have lived on Chyvarloe Farm, near Helston, for the past few years.

Omg... How cute are these two!  But, I wouldn't want to be in the way if they are angered.

They are cute but I have seen some pretty big pigs before but then again pictures probably don't do them justice.

You're right!  Pictures don't do them justice!  When I read that the male is 7 ft long... Wow!  It would really make an impact to see them next to a man.

I do love those floppy ears though x)
