When ranchers in Morgan Hill, CA shot and cut open a wild hog, they realized what they had in front of them was much more than your average swine. The pig’s insides were a cotton-candy blue color.
A writer named GlendiTEK posted the photos of the fluorescent pig over on the website ArtBell.
GlendiTEK, who claims he is a relative of the California ranchers who found the pig, says that the animal is healthy and normal in every way—except for its blue-colored colored fat, which runs throughout its entire body.
The farmers are unsure what caused the odd-colored fat, but plan on sending samples to scientists at UC Davis to try and better understand what contributed to the otherworldly hue.
But this isn’t the first time someone has discovered odd-colored pork.

“So, my in-laws live on a ranch in Morgan Hill, CA and they shot a wild pig on it. They thought it a normal pig until they cut it open. When they cut into the pig they found that the fat on the pig was a fluorescent blue.”
“Everything else about the pig was normal, the meat, blood, etc. The only weird part was the blue fat throughout the body.”
We have no clue why the fat is this color but it is all over the pig no matter the section.
“They are sending in a sample to UC Davis to see the cause of this, but if anyone knows please feel free to explain because we are at a loss.”
