It’s spring, which means lambs, calves and kids are being born, and while getting a deformity here or there isn’t unheard of, one found by a Croatian farmer is exceedingly unusual.
A kid — a baby goat — was born with eight legs and two sets of genitalia, apparently connected to an under-developed twin, according to ITV.
“I counted his legs, and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbor to make sure that I am not crazy,” Zoran Paparic from Kutjevo told InSerbia. “Everything is double with him. Goat Sarka, which I have had for three years, gave birth to a miracle of nature. This is her fourth time and she always has triplets.”
At this point, Paparic said the so-called “octogoat” can’t walk because it lacks the strength.
Watch Pararic show off the kid:
If the goat survives the next couple of weeks, veterinarians said it would likely live to 2 or 3 years old, ITV reported.
Paparic told InSerbia that a few years ago, a friend had a goat born with two heads.
