Farmer Lan Yi, from Luocheng in southern China's Guangxi Province decided to raise a pair of the hideous hogs after he discovered them living deep in the mountains.
He captured the two ferocious-looking porkers last year when they were just piglets during a trip to the Jiuwan mountain range.
He said: 'They were still piglets when I discovered them in a litter in a deep mountain place.'
The two animals have large hooves, fearsome snouts and thick black hair covering their body. Yan now hopes to breed the pair and cultivate the species on his farm.
