CNN reports: “the little girl is being hailed as a return of the Hindu goddess of valor, Durga, a fiery deity traditionally depicted with three eyes and many arms.”

Raw Story has AP video. The BBC has updates.

The extraordinary eight-limbed baby was born in a poverty-stricken region of Bihar, India – on the day devoted to the celebration of the four-armed Hindu deity Vishnu.”

and before that,

The amphibian was kept in a container for several hours but hopped away later while nursery staff were showing it to curious parents.”

and then there’s this https://i2.wp.com/www.annexed.net/images/3headed.jpg

“Lin noted that the turtle walks in a zigzag pattern because the two fully-developed heads which flank a partially developed one cannot agree on which direction to take.

Now you may be thinking, ‘well thank goodness I don’t live in a polluted backwater like India, the United Kingdom or China.’

But you would be wrong, wrong, wrong.

Meet some mutants from the American food chain, after the jump…

From MSNBC: “The newborn black Angus calf romps about the central Nebraska farm just like the other calves.

Only this one has six legs, organs for both sexes and a surgically supplied rectum.”

From the San Francisco Chronicle: “Mark Krombholz had to look twice at his new calf, Lucy — one time for each nose.” https://i0.wp.com/imgs.sfgate.com/c/pictures/2007/05/12_t/mn_bonus_nose3_t.gif

The second, smaller nose sits on top of the first. … Breeder Scott Grund said Lucy’s noses seem to be working fine.“It looked like she was comfortable laying there in her bedding and breathing and spunky just like you want to see,” Grund said. “It’s just that she’s got two noses.”

That kind of rare deformity is usually not the result of genetics, he said. But breeders do track such mutations.”

This video shows one of several reported kittens with two faces:

and now there are reports of cats with four ears

“Stumpy was born in February at Warrawee Duck Farm, Copythorne, Hants, with two extra legs behind the two he moves on.”

“… he seems a very happy duck.”
