Do you know about the Rorschach tests? You may know them better as the ink blot tests. I’ve been looking at them a lot lately trying to test my IQ. Let me show you a picture and then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Take for instance the picture here to the right. What do you see? Most people would say a butterfly. I see a dragon in full flight with the picture being taken over him. See how it works? I personally think, and this is coming from Dr. Bacon, that you can do the same thing with snouts. Snouts are like fingerprints to humans. We all look different.
Take my snout for an example. Look closely at the markings. What do you see? Mom sees the outline of the character Mickey Mouse. This makes me different from other pigs and their snouts. What do you see? I like to refer to this strategy of looking at pig snouts as PigRorschach or AKA PigInk Blot. I’ve got a couple of more snouts for you to examine below. As you will see, I have a very unique and unusal snout marking.
