A piglet with three eyes, two noses and two mouths was born in Jiangxi Province's capital city, Nanchang, on Dec. 9, 2013, the local news portal "jxnews.com.cn" reported Tuesday.

"The mother pig gave birth to a total of 10 piglets; only this one is unique in appearance," said the mother pig's feeder, identified in the report by the surname Du. He added that this is the first time he's seen such a strange piglet since he began working with pigs 11 years ago.

This piglet walked unsteadily and has some difficulties suckling.

Director of a local veterinary station, identified in the report by the surname Wan, claimed that, "The deformity ratio in piglets is low, and the mother pig may have eaten some mildewy fodder before it has given birth to such a deformed piglet."

"The piglet has two brains and two mouths, which may cause problems with feeding; the piglet will not get enough nutrients and will likely have a low rate of survival," director Wan suggested.
