The Lamb with a leg growing on its head

Weird animals. This lamb  in Spain has a leg growing from  its head. Watch the video of this bizarre condition.


This strange  condition is called polymelia. It is a birth defect where an additional limb grows from a random part of the body.

Sheep are not the only animals to suffer from polymelia. Ducks, cows, frogs and dogs have all been born with extra limbs.

Humans can also suffer from polymelia. For instance In July 2007 a child was born with four legs in South Africa.

  1. Wow! That was just plain freaky… I can honestly say that I’ve never heard of a lamb that had a leg growing from its head before. I wonder if they blame this type of mutation on pollution and the environment, as well. It looks to me, that we have some mysterious genetic mishaps. Maybe those aliens are not coming down from their UFOs and playing with the DNA again; yikes!
