A five legged lamb has been born in the United Kingdom.

Heather Hogarty is part-owner of Whitehouse Farm in the Morpeth, Northumberland. She said the five-legged lamb was born as part of a set of triplets on Feb. 22, 2022. The animal appears to be in good health.

The owners of a British farm said they were shocked when a lamb was born recently with a fifth leg sticking out of its side.

Extra limbs are believed to occur in about one out of every 1 million lamb births, However, Hogarty said the lamb is actually the second to be born with a fifth leg at the farm.

Quinto, a sheep born about a decade before the new arrival, had an extra leg in the center of her body. The limb had to be removed, but Quinto went on to have a long and healthy life.
