Weirdest Deformed Animals of the World

This is a collection of extraordinary rare and weird deformed animals.

A Deformed Lamb


This seven-legged lamb was photographed when it was found on July 31, 2007, at the farm at Methven near to Christ Church which is situated in the South Island of New Zealand. The veterinarian, Steve Williams believed that this deformity was caused by a misprint in embryo formation. Due to this scientific reason, the lamb was being born polydactyl (or with many legs). He further remarked that this is a common condition that may have occurred once in every several million sheep.

A Deformed Giraffe


This was Gemina, a giraffe which was found to have a dominant crooked neck joining to its body at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Unfortunately, it died on January 9, 2008.

Two Deformed Snakes




As seen in the photo, this albino snake was born with two heads. The strange feature for such snake is that its two separate mouths were connected to the same stomach. Usually, the snake, which was born with this deformed characteristic, would not live longer. As a result, its life may be as short as two months. Nevertheless, the snake that you see in the picture had unexpectedly survived for a long life span of 8 years.

A Deformed Cow


This unusual six-legged Cambodian cow was found resting at the farm near to the Cambodia city, Phnom Penh on October 7, 2003. The monks from the local pagoda who scared of getting bad fortune that would bring by the cow, later named it as “Cham Leck.” (Literally means “strange”).

A Deformed Octopus


This six-legged octopus or “hexapus” was found by the British marine experts. They claimed that this was the first unusual sea creature discovered among the octopus families. It was observed to have two limbs lesser than its normal species. His keepers at the Blackpool Sea Life Centre which is situated in the northwest of England believed that its deformity was due to the birth defect instead of the casual accident.

A Deformed Duckling




One deformed duckling called “Stumpy” was found at Warrawee Duck Farm in Copythorne, Hamphire (a country on the south coast of England), England. This duckling was born in 2007 with four legs which is unusual to a typical duck that has two legs. While examining this duckling, the scientist found that it has two unusual legs grown out behind its normal pair of legs. According to its owner, the duck has no problem with its daily activities despite these deformed legs which was caused by a rare mutation. These two legs seemed to support its movement.

A Deformed Reptile Fossil


Scientists have long found the double-headed fossil. From the laboratory sample, this aquatic reptile was identified died at its very young age before forming into a fossil. This extinct adult reptile was diagnosed to grow as long as one meter. Its relatively long neck marked its unusual feature among its species.

Two Deformed Calves


Before New Year's Eve, one unusual and unexplainable phenomenon occurred in a dairy farm in Virginia, an American state on the Atlantic Coast of the southern United States. A mother cow gave birth to a calf with two faces on December 27, 2006. This calf was believed to be a product of artificial insemination. There was not much of a difference from this calf and other ordinary ones when viewing it from its neck until to its tail. Nevertheless, the rare characteristic for such “double-sided” calf was that it has a relatively unusual large head. It breathed out of two noses, and has two tongues, which moved independently.


This six-legged calf was born on April 29, 2007 at the farm of Brian Slocum of Litchfield. The calf was diagnosed to have both male and female reproductive organs.

Deformed Tortoises






This tortoise was seen on June 24, 2007, in Huaibei which is located in the eastern part of Anhui Province of China. The local media reported that its gourd shaped resembling a large fruit with a hard skin and soft juicy flesh inside was the result of a gene mutation. That means the gene mutation has contributed to its aberration, a condition of a temporary change from what is normal or acceptable among its species.

Two Deformed Kittens


This two-faced kitten was born in Inverness, Fla. It has one esophagus, two noses and four eyes. This photo was pictured while its owner, Cobra Macini was feeing his beloved kitten.


One unusual event happened in Oregon City in the United States. A kitten was born with only one large eye grown on the position of its nose on December 28, 2005. This type of deformity is known as Holoprosencephaly. Besides one eye, the kitten was also found to have no nose at all. This deformed kitten finally died two days after it was born.

A Deformed Crocodile


These baby crocodiles were born in June 2001, at the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm which is located on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand. Unfortunately, they were born with their bodies joined together at their bottom part. They were reptiles identified for having two tails and eight legs.

A Deformed Chicken


A chicken with four legs was discovered on September 21, 2006, in one of the chicken farms in the United States. This chicken was different from other normal chickens as it has four very long legs attached beneath its body.

Deformed Pigs


The research team from the Taiwan University succeeded in producing three green fluorescent pigs. According to the professor of the University, Prof. Dr. Wu, these three green fluorescent pigs were the outcomes of this experiment, in which the green fluorescent genes from the jellyfish were implanted into three transgenic pig embryos. It produced three pigs that have their entire bodies emitting green fluorescent light.

A Deformed Turtle




The local people in Costa Rica happened to come across the rarely seen double-headed turtle lying on the shore. This turtle did not have a typical appearance of a turtle, as it had two brains grown out on its front. The turtle in the photo was hatched on the beach on November 20, 2005 in this deformed manner when it was found.

Two Deformed Frogs



In 1995, many seriously deformed leopard frogs were discovered around the lakes and rivers in the wetlands of the United States. According to reliable sources, several species with these deformities have been found across Minnesota, and into neighboring South Dakota, Quebec and Wisconsin over years. Among these deformed frogs, some were found with three legs, some were found to be handicapped of legs, and some even have four to five legs. When this news spread, it quickly drew the attention of environmental experts. New research identifies that such deformities have been caused partly due to runoff from farming and ranching. This conclusion was supported by the study of a University of Colorado, as they agreed that the growing number of deformed frogs were primarily caused by the nutrient-rich runoff from farming and ranching as indicated by the new research.

"Hamphire (a country on the south coast of England)"

its Hampshire, and its a county (like a US State) not a country (like England)

Actually a country is a state...
State - a politically unified people occupying a definite territory; nation.
Nation - A relatively large group of people organized under a single, usually independent government; a country.

hello? why sit there and argue about a county versus a state when you just looked at a ton of cool pictures of deformed animals?

if you want to act like idiots and argue politically correct terms, start a blog. dumbasses.

In the US, States are what the country is divided into. Each state is divided into smaller territories called counties. And within each county are cities.

The United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, & Northern Ireland), Great Britain, and the British Isles are all different and are a little more complex. I live in the US, so I won't even try to explain it all as I know I'd mess it up.

Now, everybody stop being so damned hateful, sheesh.

Anyway, this was an interesting article. I've seen many of these pictures before, but it was nice to see some information about them. I felt especially bad for the poor one-eyed kitten that ended up dying.

Why are you complaining about the spelling of Hampshire - Its boring there anyway, I'm sure someone would find some better if they followed a sign to hamsphire or however it was spelt. Seen most of these before, I bet that 2 headed dinosaur would have been scary if it had lived.

It's actually supposed to be Hampshire, a county on the southern coast of England.

everyone who left a comment about a state being a country, you guys are all fucking dumb asses. who gives a shit. get a life instead of arguing about what someone says.

unless "Hampshire" is a deformed country with 3 legs,8 eyes, and can turn people to stone...I really don't care.

The cyclops kitten wasn't born in Oregon city. it was born in Redmond, Oregon. I live there, I remember it.

i feel bad for these animals as an animal lover myself i say it isn't funny and all you jerks talking bout boners and other stupid stuff are dumb asses who don't care for the life of other living things but their own life and they are just selfish to do that.

England is basicly a state within the UK as is Scotland, Wales and N.I.... but a county is nothing like a state, becuase a state can create Laws as can the other countrys in the UK.... bit of a head fuck but didnt think id be talking bout this on this page??? cool pics tho, lots of 2 headed turtles or tortoises

Once I found a deformed frog similar to the one shown at the end. It swam funny so it was easy to catch when I was hunting for frogs with friends when I was younger. It had another leg attached to it's right leg and that added leg had two feet

These are not amusing. Not awe inspiring. They are the product of chemicals and poisons in our soil, air, food. We cannot drop bombs in Iran and not expect the poisons to stay right there. Winds circle the globe. Also in the US there has been much nuclear testing as well as leaks.

Stay tuned. More to come you can bet.

how about you idiots do some research before blaming pollution the frogs are a result of little pebbles attaching to tadpoles and deformation happen in nature all the time

someting should be done to help these animals.maybe even build a centre for deformed animals with animals with the same problems.the way they can the normalist life possible.we need to do something....NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Not all mutations are caused by problems in the environment. Screw-ups happen all the time when DNA is copied. Or a cell/embryo doesn't split all the way, giving you conjoined twins (like these with two heads). That's completely natural, and is just a result of an imperfection.

those poor animals. i'm a big animal lover and seeing them made me want to tell the vets to build a special place for them

I agree with you there

HEY there I'm a marine biologist and what is happening to these animals is incredibly sad- but kind of hilarious.

Your the dumb one and I'm eleven

The person that is blaming this on chemicals and pollution should do more research!!!!! Most of the problem is genetics and just plain ole nature. Ppl always have to find a reason to argue about something don't u. I mean really, u ppl r being dumb. There is always one or two ppl that has to find fault in something and run their mouth just to be a jerk! How about the old saying "if u can't say nothing nice say nothing at all!!"

Amber Savage said...

Perhaps u r Correct! But most of it is from NATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAYBE WHERE U R FROM U HAVE THAT PROBLEM
