A 6-legged lamb was just born at a Georgia farm. The lamb also appears to be a hermaphrodite with both male and female sex organs.
The piebald lamb has four legs at the front and another two at the back. The Huffington Post reports that the lamb appears to have at least partial control of all of its limbs. Beside the animals abnormalities it appears to be perfectly healthy.
WPBF reports that the lamb was born in the village of Velistsikhe. Shepherd Albert Abadzhanov said that the animal is having a little trouble walking but seems to be getting the hang of it. Abadzhanov said:
“I have been asking the other shepherds, but none of them remember such [a] case. There were three-legged lambs, one-eyed, but not [a] six legged, bisexual one.”
Veterinarian Otto Zardiashvili believes that the calf’s mother was probably having twins, but some how the embryos were combined. Zardiashvili said:
“Most probably there were twins, but then the embryos were united, and we’ve got a strange lamb.”
Here’s a video of the 6-legged lamb.
Animal abnormalities aren’t as uncommon as you might think. There have been several confirmed reports of two headed animals.
