Baby cow with 7 legs astonishes Vietnamese villagers
A farmer in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong said one of her cows had given birth to a calf with seven legs and with both male and female sex organs.
Ka Ban said the baby cow was born on Tuesday. Most of the legs look normal, except for one which is only 20 centimeters long.
