Cow Born With Two Faces

A calf was born in northern Florida on Monday with two faces, stunning the farm's owners.

"It was just like a surprise, because no one has ever seen anything like this around here," Carolyn Crews told WTSP news.

The calf, named Annabel, has two heads, four eyes and two mouths, noses and ears. When one mouth feeds from a bottle, the other mouth suckles at the same time, News4Jax reported.

"You know, I don't think she's going to make it," Crews told WTSP. The animal can't walk or lift its head, and can't feed from its mother.

The condition of having more than one head, Polycephaly, is an incredibly rare genetic mutation. Although the odds of a two-headed calf are extremely small, another one was born in Virginia in March. In that case, the calf was stillborn.

The Crews family could not be reached Thursday for additional information about the calf or its current condition.
