As Lenta.ru writes with reference to the Daily Mail, in one of the states in Brazil a calf with a physical disability was born. The animal has one neck but two heads. The animal was able to live five days, which is rare for mutants.
The two-headed calf was born in Goias, which is located in the Brazilian municipality of Cayaponia.
One of the farmers who attended the birth and fed the calf with milk from the bottle said that both mouths and esophagus function well in the calf. Usually such animals die immediately after birth. The two-headed calf was able to live five days. All this time, farm workers, scientists and veterinarians tried to save him.
One of the veterinarians told reporters that this is a rare case and, most likely, the mutation occurred due to the crossing of “relatives”.
