An Australian wool farmer has found a lamb from his flock with five legs.

To make things more crazy the leg was growing out of its head.

The sheep will now become a family pet because of an unusual feature.

Sam Kuerschner, of Orroroo, South Australia, said he was taking a break from shearing when his father noticed something unusual about one of the lambs in the pen.

He said the extra leg was made all the more unusual by the fact that it’s coming out of the back of the animal’s head.

The fully formed leg come out the back of the head. It includes a bone, joints and it’s even got a sort of hoof on the end of it. The legs seems to be attached to the sheep just through skin or flesh, rather than a bone joint.

Veterinarian Paul Nilon of Perth estimated one in 200,000 sheep are born with an extra limb.

“The most common variation I’ve seen is where you have an additional foot and hoof growing out the side of the lower leg, but I have seen at least one growing from the head,” he said.
