We are fascinated with life, death and the process of creation at Rest in Pieces.
We have spent months carefully preserving our wet specimens and have worked closely with a veterinary scientist to diagnose these gorgeous piglets.
This piglet has a form of neural tube defect, where the early brain fails to form or divide properly. It also has what is called a maxillary fusion defect (AKA cleft palate), but in the case of this piglet, its snout and mouth have fused together, giving it a pronounced proboscis, or a trunk!
This specimen is in a scientific jar and measures 26cm x 10cm.
Please Note: This item is only available for pick up from our Melbourne HQ. For customers located elsewhere, we are happy to provide a postage quote.
