When we went to believe it or not exhibit i saw a lot of unusual things that is really unbelievable but the one's that amazes me is all this weird looking creatures or animals that they have. I even took a picture of a five legged fox, they also have a two headed calf. they are genuine, means that they are born that way, but what they have in the exhibit is not living anymore. well, it is just so intriguing to see different animal oddities, have you already seen one like this before? what kind of animal? please share it to us? Do you know what's the causes why they are like this? i just have no clue but for sure it's rare to see something like this nowadays. (i attached the picture of the five legged fox that we seen in the museum, just view it friends, it's kinda neat)

No I haven't actually seen any weird looking animals in person, but yeah I do have read abt them in the newspapers and also seen them on National Geographic.. Once I saw a two legged dog, that cud run faster than its 4 legged peers.. Then I also saw a 2 headed turtle, it was very cute.. There are a whole lot of wierd animals in this world...

Well, the animal I'm thinking of wasn't born the way he was, he was hit by a car and became a three legged, one eyed cat. After the cat was hit, my friend from childhood got his mom and they took the cat to the vet, where it recovered, but was left with only 3 legs, and one eye. The vet was going to put the cat down, but my friend (then around 10) decided he wanted to keep it. So his parents let him, and that cat lived 11 more years, happy as a lark, 3 legs, 1 eye, and all. : )

i've seen a dog on TV that got hit by a car, they have to cut 2 legs in the same side. but now, he can still run using two legs in the right side. it's amazing the dog survived this and still running like he/she didn't lose his/her two legs.

I'm not sure if I should say "they are lucky to be alive"! It really must be difficult to live without several organs all your life because of an idiot driver...!

Nobody said they were lucky to be alive. But they made the most of the lives they were left with.

It seems to me faked! Look at the last leg , it has a diffrent color than the others and you can notice the BLUR add to crossing area , I mean where the leg meets the body , it's obvious or it's kinda RADIATION effect that would bring us a real RESIDENT EVIL I guess...

I saw a six legged frog, two headed turtle, a six legged calf, and a two headed snake. I call that strange.

Hi claire03. Yes there was a six legged puppy found in Dublin, Ireland a couple months ago. It also had duel organs. It was found alive and well on the streets and brought to the pound to make sure it was ok. And yes they called him spider!!!

A five legged fox is a rare find. There was a five legged lamb and a five legged cow in the news a few years back. When they animals are forming in their mothers womb the cells were probably dividing into twins but instead of forming a whole set of twins one of the embryos absorbed the other embryo. I've also heard that it could have been just a genetic mutation. I'm not a scientist so I can't be sure. Two headed turtles and two headed snakes are more common than animals with extra legs. Two headed turtles are actually able to survive well enough in captivity.

That's totally amazing. What a great shot. How did you get him to stand on that car and pose like that? hehehe.

They simply have birth defects kinda like humans.. Some people have an extra arm and animals the same.. Of course the humans can have it removed but animals can't mainly when they are out in the wild like the fox.. That is a neat but strange picture.. I have to say I've never seen anything like it before that's for sure.. I think though the more you go into the wilderness the more you will such things..

Oh my....where you got this such news actually? My first time to have this!!!. Genetic scientist can answer your question or anybody who learned about genetic study. To me just a nice wild animal to train to be my good pet....

I saw in the news a few months back about a cow that had two snouts. It was very strange to see. So I guess it can happen now and then in all kinds of animals. I heard of people having extra fingers and stuff too. It is a weird looking fox. Considering the hunting junkies are out in full force around here, it would probably survive about 30 seconds if it was around here.

I think such kind of weird animals can happen now and then. As it can prove that our environment is polluted and therefore there will be weird animals.
