Plus, they look pretty badass… in the most ADORABLE WAY POSSIBLE!
Ten glow-in-the-dark piglets have been born this year in China, and it wasn't by accident — they are the result of an experiment at the South China Agriculture University! They've been tweaked by injecting a fluorescent protein from jellyfish DNA into the pig embryos.
The good news is that the animals were NOT hurt by the process and besides the glowin' they're normal-ass pigs!
So what's the benefits of this?? To show that foreign genetic material can be incorporated from one animal to an entirely different animal! This means CHEAPER DRUGS FOR HUMANS!
Plus it's just cool! Ha!
Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP!!!
A super cute litter of Chacoan Peccary piglets was born at San Francisco Zoo in early November.
They're not only super dooper cute, they're also endangered!
The little ones are growing and exploring their outdoor habitat, being super adorbz, leaping and running in circles, doing a behavior known as 'frisky hopping.'
They are so stupid cute we can barely handle it!
These poor animals are threatened by habitat loss and illegal hunting, though.
So glad SF Zoo is doing their part to help save these lil cuties!
Check out the video (above) to watch the adorbz guys running around!
James Cromwell is a talented actor and a huge animal rights activist.
Hell, he's even been arrested during a cat abuse protest!
He's willing to put his freedom on the line for the animals! He's so great!
James narrates a GRAPHIC video of hidden camera footage from within a pig factory farm captured by a Mercy for Animals agent.
The pigs are subjected to beatings, violent medical procedures without pain killers, mama pigs stuck in gestation crates and more awful things.
This is where Walmart gets its pork.
So many other companies and even the entire European Union don't use gestation crates, but Walmart is heartless and awful.
Check out the video (above) to see this awful cruelty, but be aware it is very GRAPHIC!
Ahhhh omg omg omg!!! Cute cute cuteeee!!
We had no idea we were so absolutely in love with cutie micro pigs!
Three micro pigs of all different cutie colors were hanging out together, getting a bath.
And that's about it.
Just three teeny, tiny piggies, hanging out in a tub together, yet it's more than enough to send our cute glands into overdrive.
The cute is pumping through our veins and we can't get enough.
This video is def going in the "watch on repeat until the end of time" pile.
Check out the video (above) to watch three micro pigs bathe as you awwwww your heart out.
In Quebec, Canada, a truck full of pigs was heading to a slaughterhouse.
One brave little piglet refused to just accept his fate and decided to give death the slip.
He wriggled his tiny body through a hole in the trailer and fell onto the highway, got up and ran away!
Drivers saw the whole ordeal and notified the cops.
An officer eventually found the piglet wandering along the road and called animal services.
After several animal lovers heard of the little piggy's daring escape, they eventually got him sent to the Wishing Well Sanctuary.
The sanctuary's owner took in the piglet, named him Yoda and said:
Wow, seriously, micro pigs are so impossicute we don't know why everyone doesn't have one!!
This little piggy wiggy was just hanging out on a man's bed, being super cute.
Then he called her over and she immediately knew it was ON!!
Belly rub time!
Watch as the tiny piggy just parks herself on the bed right in front of him and gets some tummy rubs.
It's so ridiculously cute! We can't stand all the adorbz oinking! We're about to have a cuteness overload!
Check out the video (above) to see the world's cutest micro pig getting some lovin'!

Ha! This little guy doesn't know what he is!
We didn't either at first!
When you see that cage and the little blanket start moving, we automatically assume a puppy or kitty are going to pop out any moment.
But that just wasn't the case… it was a mini pig! Almost cuter than puppies and kittens combined!
This little guy is extra adorbz because he doesn't oink like a normal piggy, he quacks like a duck!
Don't' believe us??
Then check out the video (above) and find out for yourself!
