“It is biologically impossible for humans to cross-breed with pigs,” a senior lecturer in Pretoria said.
“In genetic terms, each species has a unique number of chromosomes,” she explained. “Some species, such as horses and donkeys, are related and have very similar chromosome numbers (62 versus 64), and thus can breed and produce live offspring.
“However, humans have 46 chromosomes, while pigs have a total of 38. Given this, it is impossible for these species to even produce a viable embryo or foetus , let alone offspring.”
