Micro Bacon

I’ve always wanted a pig for a pet.  From Charlotte’s Web to Babe, pigs are just too cute for words.

But I’ve never indulged my fantasy of owning “Eggs” (cute name I know), as I’m scared of how big they grow and a 300 pound porker in my backyard was always a bit daunting.

But thanks to the ingenuity of pig breeders it seems I can finally realise my dream, that is if I don’t mind paying a hefty price.

Meet the Micro Pig!

With their wrinkled little snouts, tiny trotters and oversized ears, they are irresistibly cute.

But while these micro pigs may be minuscule, their price tag is anything but.

In exchange for up to £700, owners take home a pet which weighs just 9oz at birth and is the size of a tea cup.
