The World's Most Stylish Pigs With Over 625,000 Followers On Instagram

Stylish Priscilla and Poppleton, from Jacksonville, Florida, are hogging the limelight as Instagram's most famous pet piggies.

The cute duo have amassed a fan base of 626,000 on the photo-sharing site where they can be seen posing at the beach in 'pigkinis' or as 'pigs in blankets.'

Owner Melissa Nicholson, 43, fell in love with the animals after visiting a farm as a student at the The University of Alabama.

She said: 'I am truly blessed to be able to share these precious piggies with others all over the world. The love people have for is amazing.

'I get comments daily on what a bright spot they are in so many people's days - this is what keeps me going. 'Knowing that someone might be in hospital but that they will smile when they see Prissy and Pop.

'I also have a lot of people tell me they don't eat pork anymore because of Prissy and Pop.'

The latest additions to her pig family are six-month old Primrose and Pinkerton who are also proving a huge hit.

Most of the trendy wardrobe are actually dog clothes that come from local pet stores or online shops - but they seem to fit perfectly.
