Berlin's Tierpark (that translates to "animal park," kids) welcomed 13 Chinese Meishan piglets on Sunday. The Meishan breed, not surprisingly, is known for its wrinkled skin and long ears.

The Meishan pig is a sub-group of the Taihu pig and is a small to medium-sized breed with large drooping ears, and wrinkled black skin. Native to a mild climate in Southern China, the breed is best known for its large litters of 15-16 piglets. These are by far, the cutest pigs I have ever seen!!!

The Large Black pig is native to Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset in southwestern England. Originally known as the Lop Eared Black, the breed was selected for large size and efficiency of production on pasture and other forages. The Large Black gained popularity rapidly during the last half of the 1800s, and it was one of the most numerous of the English pig breeds in 1900. A breed association was formed in 1898.
