Note: Video is in Chinese.

A piglet was born with two mouths and snouts last week in Yunlin, Taiwan.

Apple Daily reported that its mother is a mixed breed pig and given birth to four other normal piglets.

Unfortunately, the piglet, which was smaller and thinner than its siblings could not stand or suckle and had to be fed by the pig breeder. It only managed to survive two days.

According to The Shanghaiist, this was not the first deformed piglet the breeder has encountered. Two years ago, the breeder, who's been in the business for 30 years, one of his pigs gave birth to one with two heads and eight legs. That piglet too, died shortly after birth.
