A calf recently born in Shandong came out with six limbs, including four white legs and two brown legs tangled together and growing from its neck, China Daily reports.
“I raised its mother for five years, it has given birth to four calves so far. It’s unusual to see that it gave birth to a calf with two extra legs,” said the owner, named Zhang Gongxun.
According to Zhang, the two brown legs don’t actually have bones in them and will likely become a burden to the few-day-old calf. Zhang is waiting to see if a vet can cut off the extra limbs.
An animal expert cited in the report said that If the leg growth is not too close to its blood vessels and nerves, it should be removed as soon as possible.
But then it wouldn’t be able to team up with this eight-legged piglet in Chongqing to form an animal freak-show.
