A real life ‘spider pig ‘ has been born – with eight trotters.
Amazingly the same sow also gave birth to another piglet with two mouths.
The unusual animals were born in El Galpon, in the north-west Argentine province of Salta.
Farmer Santiago Valdez said he was astonished when the sow delivered the eight-hooved piglet, dubbed “spider-pig,” after its namesake in The Simpsons movie.
Sadly, the piglet did not survive for long, and died shortly after birth.
The farmer was even more shocked when the second pig was born with two mouths, although that had to be put down as it was unable to feed itself.
Mr Valdez snapped a few pictures of the spider-pig before it died, and shared them to social media where they quickly went viral.
He said: “I have no idea why it happened. I was surprised that nobody had asked for it, to carry out investigations.
“But nobody asked for it, so I just threw it away.”
He added that he had not noticed any abnormality in the sow that was giving birth, although she had begun to produce less piglets.
The deformed animal is just one in a series of abnormal animal births registered in rural Argentina.
In November 2015 a piglet with two bodies and one head was born in the north-eastern province of Entre Rios.
A calf born with two heads and six legs, and a chick with four legs were also born in rural Argentina in the same week.
Animal rights activists believe the birth defects may be down to industrial chemicals that the farmers are said to have used on their land, or could be the side-effect of intensive farming techniques.
