The Venezuelan district of Quebrada Arriba, Lara State, saw the birth of malformed piglet that has a bizarre human-like face, giant eyes and hair. A video of the newborn mutant piglet was made by the shocked farmer a few hours after its birth.
The video features the Venezuelan farmer holding the mutant piglet in his arms before lifting it up to the camera to give a close up of the unprecedentedly deformed animal.

“It is over three hours old,” a female voice says in the background, adding, “It also has hair!”
Reasons behind the unfamiliar looking of the piglet are unclear, though in other South American countries such deformations are usually linked to excessive use of pesticides, according to the Daily Star.
