Frog baby

This bizarre-looking baby with frog eyes was born in Chariot Nepal in 2006.

The neck-less baby with its head almost totally sunk into the upper part of the body and with extraordinarily large eyeballs literally popping out of the eye-sockets, was born to Nir Bahadur Karki and Suntali Karki at the Gaurishnkar Hospital in Charikot.

The bizarre baby, however, died after half an hour of its birth.The baby is believed to have had a condition called anencephaly, a neural tube defect with no proper brain formation.

But news of the weird looking baby  soon spread through the town and hundreds of locals gathered at the hospital to have a look. The police were called to control the crowd. In the end the baby’s father decided to parade his dead baby through the crowd in a tin tub.

The baby weighed 2kg at birth and was born after the normal nine-month gestation period. Suntali, already a mother of two normal daughters, was not suffering from any illness during the pregnancy and was to expecting such a strange looking baby to be born. Nir Bahadur, the father, said he did not feel any sadness when the baby died, “I am happy that nothing happened to my wife,” he said.
