Florida farmer finds 'one in 400 million' calf with two heads

Annabel has two heads, two mouths, two noses, two ears and four eyes.

A WOMAN IN the US state of Florida has made the astonishing discovery of a two-headed calf.

Carolyn Crews, whose family owns the land in Baker County, near Jacksonville, feeds the baby cow, who she’s named Annabel, four times a day.

The calf has two heads, two mouths – both used to feed – along with four eyes, two ears, and two ears.

Crews told local TV station WJXX she fears for the health of Annabel, whose breathing is very laboured, and who can’t stand up fully due to the weight of her two heads.

I never dreamed of such a thing happening. It’ll be something that we’ll probably never see again in our lifetime.

Actually, it’s estimated that polycephaly, as it’s known, occurs in one out every 400 million births.
