When I first saw the image posted below, I was pretty convince that it’s one of those hoax or fake images going around the internet and social media world. Who would have thought that a pig can grow some hair at its body? Not only that, the hair are so curly and it’s somewhat similar to the curly hair of a sheep!
This kind of pig is called Mangalitsa.
Mangalitsa or Mangalica is a rare breed of pig of Hungarian origin. It has an unusual growth of curly hair over its body, similar to the sheep.
Today there are more than 8,000 breeding sows in Hungary producing 60,000 animals each year. Although this is a very special pig breed, experts say that they are out of danger zone or extinction.
