Hot on the tail of the human-faced pig story comes the tale of another pig - this one with two snouts.

Born on a farm in China's Jilin province, 'Babe' the pig has not one but two snouts. The unusual piglet seems otherwise healthy enough and is being fed for the moment via a bottle. "The mouths aren't much of an advantage because his head is very heavy and he gets pushed around by the others," the farmer has said.

"The two-month-old - part of a litter born on a farm in Deshengtang, Jilin province, northern China - can use both his mouths to eat and appears otherwise normal, say his owners."

China has few regulations when it comes to genetic engineering, wonder if it has anything to do with that?

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. But at the same time, Poor thing it's gonna have such a hard time growing up. Naw, it'll adapt. Once his neck becomes stronger to support the weight, it'll be fine.

It's just one of those rare mutations. Nothing to get excited about.

Somebody needs to get this pig and have it stuffed. Collectors go crazy for these animals with defects and pay the big bucks for them if they are stuffed and mounted correctly.

This is due to the genes overproducing a gene called Sonic Hedgehog(no joke). There is an opposing force to this called Cyclopia where not enough SHH is produced resulting in things like this. there has been no record of any cyclopia animals surviving.
