A baby cow has stunned locals after being born with two heads on a farm in Brazil. A video of the two-headed calf posted by Mirror UK, shows the newborn sporting two faces that appear to be attached at the skull.
The animal, which has four eyes and two mouths, can be seen lying on the ground as a worker at the farm feeds one of its mouths with milk using a modified bottle. The worker claimed both its mouths were fully functioning.
The rare birth took place on a farm in Caiaponia, a town in the state of Goias. Zica Soares, wife of the farm-owner, told local media: “I never imagined a calf like that would be born on the farm, we are surprised.
“The vet says that we need to either put the calf down or look after him until the end. He is very bad, really weak, but I am looking after him.”
Local veterinarian, Daniel Camargos, said the birth was a rare event. According to him, “It was probably a case of inbreeding that caused the calf to be born with the anomaly. It is a very rare situation.”
