I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

This clue could be a double definition.

'island' is the first definition.
(Pacific island)

'piglet?' is the second definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I don't see how they can define each other.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for new guinea that I've seen before include "divided island" , "Papua - - - -" , "Island in the Western Pacific" , "Pacific island, the world's second largest" .)
