A goat has been born with eight legs and both male and female reproductive organs on a farm in northeast Croatia.
Farmer Zoran Paparic's goat Sarka gave birth to the kid at his farm in Kutjevo along with two healthy baby goats.
Local veterinarians believe the extra legs are in fact an underdeveloped twin sibling.
“I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy” he said.
Mr Paparic told InSerbia vets believe it is unlikely to survive, but if it lives longer than a week it could be alive for up to three years.
“Everything is double with him. 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.’
“He is trying to stand on his feet, but lacks strength.”
Mr Paparic said he would like to keep the kid as a pet if it does survive.
