Pig Face? Monkey Face ? Pig Monkey Face?

And this little guy was born to a sow in China. "The animal was one of five piglets recently born to a sow owned by a family in Fengzhang village, Xiping township."

"The piglet’s rare condition is thought to be caused by a form of holoprosencephaly, a brain development disorder that can cause cyclopia, the failure of eyes to properly separate."

His owners think he's pretty ugly and didn't initially want to keep him, but their son liked him and fed him milk, now he's a bit of a tourist attraction. He reminds me of someone, but for the life of me I can't think who it is right now. Not drinking is wrecking my head clearly.

He looks like he should be propping up the bar in a dark corner of a very sifty pub.

He does, doesn't he? The last photo makes me feel very sad for him really, for some reason, poor little pigmonkey.

Anyway, I like the little freak.

He'd make a good pet.

How is it these genetic aberrations always seem to happen in obscure villages in India, China and Offaly?

Medbh, don't be mean. There are some worse looking people about the place and we are not allowed kill them so leave the little nipper alone. I hope he is not suffering he looks so sad. Why I'd feed him till he gets a pot belly then I'd let him hop into bed beside me.

"Deepest Wicklow"

I know what you mean. You look 'em in the eye by mistake and you see they're completely timber crazy inside and their genetic soup hasn't been stirred in a very long time.

It's about all the mutants and how they form. This ickle pig has a kind of mutation that is pretty frequent, to be honest,, though most of them don't make it to full term. It is a gene called a homeobox gene and depending on how it is mutated, you can end up with a single cycloptic eye in the middle of your head or a bunch of eyes all over your head.

No jokes about cycloptic trouser snakes, please.

I keep thinking about the three-eyed fish in the Simpsons, not one-eyed custard chuckers, how very dare you.

I KNEW there was a reason I don't like swimming in the sea-apart from my quite rational fear of drowning.
