So the most emailed photo on Yahoo for today was this photo of a lamb which was born with six legs in Belgium. This fits right in with all the other mutant animal photos (remember the two headed snake and the one eyed kitten). So is the farm where this lamb was born down river from any nuclear power plants, in the fallout path from Chernobyl, or is this just random mutation? Is a lamb with six legs a better all terrain vehicle than a lamb with four legs? Would you eat the meat from a lamb that had six legs?
Yahoo had a photo of a five legged cow at one point which I blogged about but which doesn't seem to be available anymore. In searching for the photo I stumbled on this "Sideshow World" website which has all kinds of photos of mutated animals such as two headed cows, two faced kittens, a second photo of a cyclops kitten (not the same kitten as the most recent photo which appeared on Yahoo/AP). It also features multiple images of cows with five or six legs in some instances as well as a seven towed cat and an eight legged lamb. They also have posters and such from old carnivals and sideshows one of which features a drawing of a two legged dog. Crazy stuff (photos not for the faint of heart).
Well these mutated photos are flying fast and furious now aren't they? From two headed snakes to today's one eyed cyclops kitten. According to the caption of the article this kitten was born with one eye and no nose. It only lived about a day and the owner named it Cy. If you ever wondered where they came up with all the Greek monster myths like the hydra and the cyclops this is probably one good example of where they came from. And you though dragons were fake too huh? Wait until you meet a 12 foot long komodo dragon lizard.
