Beijing (DM): A shocked Chinese farmer could not believe it when his eyes when he saw his ewe gave birth to a two-headed lamb. The polycephalic lamb was born in Hohhot, the capital of northern China’s Inner Mongolia. The amazing animal has four eyes, two mouths and two noses and seems perfectly healthy - apart from the additional head. The lamb is believed to have been just four days old when it was photographed. Some polycephalic animals face trouble when their two brains ‘argue’ with each other over the control of their limbs.

In the case of multi-headed snakes, one head has been known to attack and try to eat the other.
