At first glance, with its woolly coat, onlookers would be forgiven for mistaking this creature for a sheep. However, a closer look at this rare breed reveals a snout and trotters usually found on pigs. Sheep pigs! Not only are they the most whimsical creatures ever, according to science, but they have the best nicknames, too: pigs in blankets. Known as Mangalitza or curly-hair hogs, these woolly sheep pigs come from the mountains of Austria and Hungary and are the beginning of a Mangalitza breeding program, an attempt to save the rare and endangered species of adorable sheepiggy. As it turns out, the curly coat that makes them so cuddly is also a crucial survival mechanism and a natural method for confusing tourists to no end.
