A baby goat has been born with eight legs and both male and female reproductive organs.

Vets say the extraordinary animal's extra limbs are the result of an underdeveloped twin sibling.

Croatian farmer Zoran Paparic's couldn't believe what he was seeing when his goat Sarka recently gave birth.

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

Mr Paparic knows that it is unlikely the goat will survive but if it does could live for two of three years and he is keen to keep him.

"Everything is double with him," he added. "Sarka, which I have had for three years, gave birth to a miracle of nature.

"This is her fourth time and she always has triplets. He is trying to stand on his feet, but lacks strength."
