Nature can be pretty freaky, there’s no doubt about that. But we are used to a certain level of natural freakiness. But what you are about to see is so freaky that even nature seems to be slightly disturbed. From six legged cows to two headed snakes, here are the 25 disturbing freaks of nature that you have to see to believe. These look like something from another world or even another dimension, and that’s not an exaggeration.

Seven Legged Lamb
This crazy looking seven-legged lamb was found on July 31, 2007 in a farm called Methven near Christ Church situated in the South Island of New Zealand. This unfortunate guy is believed to have suffered from a misprint in embryo formation resulting in this bizarre scenario.
Giraffe with a 90 Degree Neck
Gemina, a 12 foot tall Baringo Giraffe became famous for her bizarre neck deformity. Bent by almost 90 degrees, the deformity was not present when she was born and was first noticed when the she was three. In spite of the deformity, Gemina lived to be 21, outliving the average giraffe by almost six years.
Two headed snake
Like something from Greek Mythology (or your worst nightmares) this guy is a perfect example of a condition called Polycephaly (referring to having more than one head). Snakes are among the most commonly observed animals sporting two heads.
Six-legged Cambodian Cow
This unusual six-legged Cambodian cow was found in a farm near the Cambodia city, Phnom Penh on October 7, 2003.
Six Legged Octopus
All Octopuses have eight muscular arms right? Wrong. This six-legged octopus or “hexapus” was found by British marine experts and is the first unusual sea creature discovered among the octopus families.
Four Legged Duck
The four legged duck called “Stumpy” was found at the Warrawee Duck Farm in Copythorne, Hampshire, England. Born in 2007, Stumpy sports unusual legs that grow out from behind its normal pair of legs but despite its abnormality, the duck has no problem with its daily activities.
Two Headed Calf
Born on December 27, 2006 in Virginia,USA, this two faced calf has a relatively unusually large head, breathes out two noses, and has two tongues which move independently. This bizarre condition is attributed to artificial insemination.
Hermaphrodite six Legged Calf
This six-legged calf was born on April 29, 2007 at the farm of Brian Slocum of Litchfield. As if having two extra pairs of legs is not bad enough, this calf also has both male and female reproductive organs.
Two headed Tortoise
This tortoise was first spotted on June 24, 2007, in Huaibei, in the eastern part of the Anhui Province of China. As you can see, it has two opposing heads which scientists are attributing to genetic mutation.
Two Headed Kitten
This two-faced kitten was born in Inverness, Florida and has one esophagus, two noses and four eyes.
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.
These baby crocodiles were born in June 2001, at the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm located on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand. The tiny conjoined crocodiles have two heads, two bodies but one tail with each one having its own separate internal organs.
Four Legged Hen
Henrietta, a four legged hen made headlines in 2005 after she was found at Brendle Farms in Somerset, Pennsylvania.
A research team from Taiwan University succeeded in producing three green fluorescent pigs. According to professor Wu, these fluorescent pigs were the product of implanted green fluorescent Jellyfish genes.
Two headed turtle
Local people in Costa Rica came across this rarely seen double-headed turtle lying on the shore.
In 1995, many deformed frogs were discovered around the lakes and rivers in the wetlands of the United States with deformed species found in Minnesota, South Dakota, Quebec and Wisconsin. New research points to nutrient-rich runoff from farming and ranching as a cause.
With two distinct pelvises and two tails, this 4 to 5 week old deer seemed to have had an identical twin that did not form all the way
Owned by Farmer Jia Kebing in Northern China’s Hebei province, the unicow has become a tourist attraction since its discovery.
Mutated Three-eyed wolf-fish
This mutated wolf-fish was caught by a fisherman in Cordoba who found it in a reservoir near a nuclear power plant in Argentina.
Bi-pedal front legged pig
Known as “Zhu Jianqiang” (strong-wille pig), the now 10-month old pig was born with only two front legs which it remarkably now uses to walk on. The pig has brought some understandable fame to owner Wang Xihai who says “She proved to us that no matter what form life is, it should continue to live on. I won’t sell it no matter how much the offer is”
Owner Cui came close to killing this bi-pedal lamb but being impressed by its determination to survive, Cui decided to keep him. The lamb is now fully capable of moving around on its two legs and according to Cui, follows her everywhere. Vets have told the farmer that the birth defect could have been a genetic throwback or the result of chemical pollution.
Piglet with the face of a Monkey
The bizarre ape-like appearance of this piglet is due to a congenital disorder which not only caused the pig’s face to form wrongly but also affected its rear legs. These are much longer than the forelegs and made the pig jump like a kangaroo. Sadly, this mutant pig died within weeks of its birth.
Conjoined Grey Whales
A pair of conjoined gray whales were found off the shore of Mexico, in what could be the first documented case of Siamese twin grey whales. The whales are believed to have been miscarried as a result of their disability.
Human faced lamb
Veterinarian Erhan Elibol had the shocking experience of delivering this freakish human-like lamb. The offspring was unfortunately stillborn.
Eight-legged Goat With Alien Face
This last one takes the cake for the most disturbing freak of nature out there in my opinion. It was born snout-less, with eight legs, and is just…ugly looking.
