An unusual animal was born in the United States in the city of Wittenberg in Wisconsin.
At the Nueske Farms family goat farm, during the next birth in early April, one of the goats gave birth to an unusual offspring - a goat with two heads was born. The animal, which was named Janus after a two-faced god in ancient Roman mythology, turned out to be completely physically healthy, apart from two heads, according to People.
The veterinarian who examined the two-faced goat explained that X-rays of the animal show two fully formed skulls that have grown together in the region of the occipital, parietal and temporal bones. Janus also has two brains that merge into a single one at their back, and in addition, each head has its own spinal cord, which combine in the spine. At the same time, the goat's two inner eyes are blind, but he eats with both mouths.
The owners of the farm said they did not intend to give up the two-headed goat. The animal feels well and behaves like an ordinary goat with the only problem - Janus experiences periodic difficulties with walking and is not always able to keep and control a large head for his age. As the owners note, they expect that over time the goat will cope with these difficulties.
