Branded a 'Monkey Pig' by social media users, the strange creature could be a result of 'environmental pollution'.
See pictures of Pig born with the face of monkey
The pictures of a piglet born with the head of a monkey has gone viral on social media.
The animal appears to have a considerably shortened snout as well as monkey-like ears and eyes.
Sadly, the piglet died just four days after it was born.
According to local media in Cuba, the owner visited a vet, who explained that the piglet had been born with a congenital defect which caused its look - and its death.
Mirror UK reported that this is not the first time that a porcine creature has come into the world looking like it belongs in a jungle, with deformed pigs being reported from South America through to China.
Some blamed environmental pollution while others argue people are simply more aware of such deformities due to social media.
Whatever the reason, the monkey-piglet quickly became something of a local tourist attraction, with people coming from across the area to photograph its remarkable features before it died.
