A piglet has been born with two snouts and three eyes.

A farm owner called He Ruxian has admitted the animal has been hand-reared after it was born with the deformity that has left it with almost double the amount of facial features it should normally have, which makes it hard to eat on its own. Regardless of the disability, Ruxian has admitted he still considers the piglet adorable. Speaking to the New China newspaper, he said: "[The piglet is] quite cute".

A three million-year-mammoth tooth has been dubbed 'find of the century.'

The "rare" tooth was discovered by a couple, Wendy and John Booth, who were searching a beach in Walton-On-The-Naze in Essex, and the pair have admitted they were "ecstatic" when they came across the prehistoric find. Wendy told The Mirror newspaper: "I was ecstatic when I realised what it was. We have never found anything like this before. You could call it a find of the century. We are keeping it as a souvenir and are proudly displaying it in our cabinet at home." Steven Walker - who is the publicity officer at Naze visitor centre - has suggested that the couple's discovery is a "rare find."

He said: "They have been turning up in Clacton. The theory is they were dredged up in the sand that was used to recharge the beaches in Holland-on-Sea."

A monster lobster weighing 14 pounds has been found in Bermuda.

The large sea creature was hooked out by fisherman last weekend after it was pulled to shore by Hurricaine Nicole, which reached speeds of around 115mph, and Sanctuary Marine Bermuda couldn't resist posting a picture on its Facebook account. Alongside a photograph of the captain holding the lobster, the fishing charter accompanied it with the caption: "Hurricane Nicole blew in some sea monsters ... 14lb lobster, caught and released (sic)" Although the huge lobster dropped jaws, it's not the biggest to ever grace the land as one was found in 1977 weighing more than 44 pounds, according to the 'Guinness Book of Records'.

A study has proved young boys spend almost 30 days playing video games.

Research carried out by Cartoon Network has revealed boys aged between six and 12 waste 29 days and nine hours glued to the latest gadget or console, and will be reprimanded by their parents 161 times a year, which is the equivalent to three times a day.

The study has also proved that 1,200 people within the age bracket will have an average of 10 friends, who they invite over to their house 67 times within 12 months. Although the research has uncovered boys spend two hours playing outside in the fresh air, despite having 143 pieces of homework to complete, the preferred pastime is reading.

Speaking about the research, Programming Director of the Kids Channels UK and Ireland, Sean Gorman, said: "This insight into how boys spend their time is a real eye-opener - particularly their keen interest in books, dedication to homework and the fact that their good behaviour outnumbers their mischief making by three times". Like Ben Tennyson, the superhero in Ben 10, British boys have active lives, going to parties, spending time with their friends and riding their bikes outside.
