(Scroll down for video) A large crowd gathered as a man showed off his pig that was born with the face of a monkey.

The animal that was named monkey-piglets, quickly became a tourist attraction with people coming from all over the area to photograph the remarkable creature.

The animal was born to a family in Ciego de Avila, Cuba.

The facial deformity resulted in the pig having a simian jaw, very short snout and protruding forehead, making it resemble a monkey.

Photos and videos that were posted online, shows its owner holding the unusual creature. They quickly went viral, sparking conversations about the cause of the defect.

Some people blame the environmental pollution for deformities in animals while others argue people are simply more aware of such deformities due to social media sites.
