Yes, this miracle happened in China and many very amused to see a Pig born with a Monkey head !! Curious people came to the owner Feng Changlin after the news spread in Fengzhang village, Xiping township in China.

The pig looks just like a monkey, with two thin lips, a small nose and two big eyes. It has rear legs which are also much longer than its forelegs, causing it to jump instead of walk. The big question is whether this pig would live on ground or climb on trees when it grows up. People have suggested the owner to keep the piglet in observation.

Sweet mercy! The thing looks like something from one of the Star Wars movies! So is this an example of monkey/pig crossbreading, or is it just a birth defect? Or maybe latent genes activating?

Looks like the ManBearPig to me.

They should call it Punkey or Mig.

Is this for real? The stuff of nightmares!

They don't know whether or not it will climb trees when it grows up...?

That's some birth defect. I don't even know what you would call that, maybe a veterinarian would. But I agree, I would keep it in observation... it might not have long to live.

Edit- There is a striking lack of information about swine birth defects on the internet. I'm shocked. I asked my mom what you would call that. She said "Monsters Inc.?" and then said "Craniofacial abnormality."

Striking lack of information about that in pigs online, too.

Seeing it makes me sad. What kind of life will that monkeyswine have? On exhibition, under observation, always a freak. Who will love it?

I am sure this is a fake. I say this because I am sure I saw a face like it in exactly the same angle on a forum a few years ago. The photo I think was posted in the midst of a flame war. I cannot prove this unless I go hunting through my old haunts and I wont because I just took a shower.

I think it could be fake, but I don't think it has to be. Birth defects are one of those weird things... like... why make a fake picture of a birth defect? If they were going for a pig with a monkey face, they could have photoshopped a better job.

I've seen pictures of similar abnormalities in other species, I see no reason why this picture HAS to be a fake.

It looks like it could be Holoprosencephaly. Mom says no because it shows micrognathia.

Well, if it's photoshopped, they went to alot of trouble to make all of the different angles match! More pics.

I'm sure this is real. Consider that this is China, rapidly becoming one of the most toxic environments on earth. We can look forward to many more genetic mutants from our Asian friends.

Since most pigs live their lives in a sty with little 'affection' just to end up as dinner, I'd say this little bugger will be living the life of Reilly!

Oh hey look what I found:



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.



www.telegraph.co.uk...

Totally what I said like three posts up. I'm telling you, I don't think it's a fake, I've seen that deformity before.

More evidence:

xenophilius.wordpress.com...

That's definitely what it is.
