A Croatian farmer says a baby goat on his farm was born with eight legs.

Veterinarians say the second set of legs is likely from an undeveloped twin. The goat also has both sets of sex organs.

Zoran Paparic of Kutjevo, a small town in the eastern part of the country, told InSerbia his goat gave birth to two other kids before the third — the one with eight legs — was born.

"I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy," Paparic said.

His goat, Sarka, "gave birth of a miracle of nature," he said.

Vets told Paparic it is unlikely the kid will survive, but if it does, Paparic said he would like to keep it as a pet. He hasn't named it yet.
