Newborn goat nicknamed 'octogoat' for its eight legs

A farmer from Croatia thought he was seeing double when his goat Sarka gave birth to an eight-legged baby, nicknamed 'octogoat'.

Vets believe the newborn's condition is the result of an under-developed twin sibling because it has both male and female reproductive organs.

It is highly unlikely the goat will survive, according to local vets. Credit: PA

Vets have said it is highly unlikely the goat will survive but if it lives past the first week, it may go on to live for two or three years.
