A man in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, never expected that the miniature pig he bought two years ago would have grown into a 1.4-meter-long potbellied adult.
The man, surnamed Li, said that the seller conned him into buying the pig, insisting that it would not be longer than 30 centimeters when it grew up. The pig, named Zaizai, was only 20 cm long when Li brought it back home.
After having Zaizai for two years, the family cannot abandon it, so they decided to raise it on the balcony of their apartment.
Li built a glasshouse on the balcony for Zaizai, and puts pieces of cloth on the floor to keep it warm. He said that Zaizai is obedient, and always walks over to family members when they approach.
