A pig was born with two sex organs in Solsona, Ilocos Norte.
Two-week-old pig named “Blessy,” which is owned by Ruby Cariaga from Barangay Puttao in Solsona, Ilocos Norte, was born with female sex organ and a testicle. She is now the talk of the town and being considered as a blessing in the area.
“Ngayon lang kami nagkaroon ng ganito. Sana, eto yung lucky namin,” said Cariago.
The pig has 13 more siblings that are normal.
According to veterinarian Jane Galvez, the pig’s condition is called hermaphroditism. She explained that hermaphrodites are sterile, meaning they have no capabilities to reproduce.

Cariago, a hog raiser, plans to keep Blessy as her pet.
