Chinese Internet sensation Zhu Roumeng and her pet pig

Ms Zhu Roumeng of Beijing and her pet pig Wuhua recently became an internet sensation after she posted selfies of themsleves on China's microblogging sites.

Her surname 'Zhu' sounds exactly like the Mandarin word for 'pig', as such it became the reason for her love of pigs since she was a child, Ms Zhu said.

Ms Zhu has been taking care of Wuhua for the past three-and-a-half years, and in that time, the piglet has grown to weigh 85 kilograms.
