Two Headed Pig Born In China [Pics]

Standard

A two-headed piglet was born in China earlier this week. According to the AFP, it was born on April 10th in a village in Jiujiang.

A local vet told the AFP that the condition was cause by a rare deformity and thus the pig would likely not live very long. However, as the Inquisitr reports, the animal’s owners agreed not to slaughter it right away.

The condition of having 2 heads is known as polycephaly. It can affect all sort of animals, even humans. Last month, a two-headed lamb was born in Ghana.
