Pig With Two Faces, Four Eyes Born

The past twelve months has seen a truly bizarre assortment of two-faced animals coming into this world. Dogs, cats, sheep, deer, rats.

Now there's a two-faced pig.

The pig was born in China's Quanhouz prvoince.

2007 is the Chinese Year Of The Pig, coincidentally, which begins on February 18, and pigs are regarded as symbols of fertility.

If you can't make sense of the photo above, just hold your hand or a bit paper to one side of the pig's head, so only half is revealed. It is a mirror-image, and quite an interesting effect when you take your hand away again. Almost like an optical illusion.
