PIG BORN WITHOUT ITS SNOUT
Written by Lola Narawa on April 22, 2023
A mutant pig has been born without its trademark snout.
The piglet’s nostrils are located on top of its gums inside its mouth.
As a result, the tiny porker has to breathe through it instead.
The little swine was born on a ranch owned by a pig farmer, Mariolys Herrera, in Guantanamo Province, Cuba, at dawn on 18 April.
One local commented: “I don’t think he will survive that long, just amazing.”
It is unclear if the farmer has taken the pig to a vet to find out whether it has a long-term chance of survival given its compromised airways.
Earlier this year, a farmer in C rdoba Province, Argentina, was left in shock after a mutant piglet was born with two snouts.
Ram n Aguilar said the piglet was able to breathe normally despite having two snouts, two mouths, two tongues, and four nostrils.
He told local media: “I’ve been raising pigs for many years and this is the first time I’ve seen one born like this.”
