A zebra and horse crossbreed named Eclyse is pictured at the Safari park in Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, western Germany. The father of Eclyse is a horse from Italy, her mother is a zebra from the Safari park in Germany.
This one-year-old cat sprouted two flaps on his back after being 'hassled' by females during a spell of hot weather in the village of Luzhou, in China's Sichuan Province. Animal experts say the harmless growths are due to gene mutation.
...not to be confused with the two-headed red slider turtle showcased at Big Al's Aquarium Supercenter in East Norriton Pa., at the same time.
Closer to home, a two-headed turtle surfaced at Sean Casey's Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, New York in August ... only to be turtle-napped a day after it's photo appeared in the Daily News.
Rudy, the two-headed pig, became the pride of Edgewood, Iowa in 1997. Most two-headed pigs are stillborn or die shortly after birth.
A two-headed pig was born in Jiujiang, China back in April 2013. The rare deformity decreases this pig's chances of survival.
A pig was born with seven legs in a town north of Manila, Phillippines in 2001. Named Kambal, meaning twins in Tagalog, the male pig has been attracted daily visitors following his birth.
A calf in Georgia may be headed for fame rather than pasture. That is, if it can survive. With two heads that give it four eyes, three ears and two mouths, the brown-haired baby cow has to be bottle-fed by its owner because its mother refuses to feed it. While it's not clear yet if the calf is healthy, it can apparently can eat with both mouths. As happens for many strange-headed creatures, people from around the calf's home of Martvili, Georgia, have come to see the creature. Joseph Paschal, a livestock specialist at the Texas Agrilife Extension, said the two-headed cow could live if both of its heads are fully attached to its body -- meaning if food and water, as well as oxygen, can easily flow through the calf.
Leonard Sonnenschein, president of the World Aquarium in St. Louis, holds We, a two-headed albino rat snake, in 2006 ... before putting up the reptile for auction on eBay.
This two-faced kitten was born in 2006, in Inverness, Fla. The kitten, one of a litter of five, was born two weeks premature and has two mouths that feed one esophagus, four eyes and two noses.
A six-legged fawn in Rome, Ga. has two distinct pelvises and uses one leg from each pelvis to walk.
This baby calf is getting a leg (or two) up in the world! The black and white spotted animal was born with an extra pair of limbs growing from its back on a farm in northeastern Spain. But while the condition might seem rare, it's not the only six-legged calf we've seen ...
It's all green pastures for Lilli, the baby calf born earlier this spring with two additional limbs on her back. The six-legged animal has become a local media sensation in Switzerland, where she was born.
An official shows a two-headed baby crocodile at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand, in 2001.
It may not be a whopper of a fish tale after all. Four months after viral Internet photos of a dead, one-eyed albino shark pup were panned as a hoax, a Mexican marine biologist has surfaced saying the fish is the real deal, LiveScience reported. Dr. Felipe Galvan Magana, a shark expert at the Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine Science, is reportedly on the verge of releasing a scientific paper claiming the find - which was found inside a pregnant bull shark caught by a local commercial fisherman off Cabo San Lucas is June - is a rare case of 'Cyclopia.'
It's a lion! No, it's a tiger! Well actually, it's a liger. These two ligers are hybrids between lions and tigresses. Sitting atop his big brother, 4-week-old Aries, has been gaining about a pound a day. At this rate he'll catch up to 900-pound Hercules in no time.
These leaf chameleons make Geico's gecko look like the Jolly Green Giant. Four recently discovered species of reptiles in northern Madagascar have been ranked among the smallest in the world, clocking in at just slightly more than an inch from tail to nose. All four species - Brookesia confidens, Brookesia desperata, Brookesia micra and Brookesia tristis - are classified to be within the same genus, but genetic testing proved that while they look identical they are actually each their own distinct species, according to a study featured on PlosOne.org.
No monkeying around: these newborn marmosets really do glow green! Kei (l.) and Kou are genetically engineered monkeys whose hair roots, skin and blood take on a neon hue under a special light. Monkeys bred by Japanese scientists have passed on the unique trait to their offspring, the first time this has been achieved in a primate.
Is this the world's horniest rabbit? Dubbed "Frankenstein," this rabbit has become an internet star after photos and videos were posted by a Minnesota college student. The rabbit, which appears to have tumors growing out of its head, was spotted by Gunnar Boettcher and his brother. Boettcher's video is entitled "The World's Scariest Rabbit" and includes the 20-year-old doing his best Steve Irwin impression. A wildlife supervisor for the Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources suspects the strange ailment is a result of a papilloma virus, which is a form of cancer.
Stumpy, a four-legged duckling at Warrawee Duck Farm, Copythorne, Hampshire, England, has double the waddle potential.
A kind-hearted North Carolina woman outbid a Coney Island freak show operator to buy a five-legged puppy last week, paying $4,000 to save the 6-week-old dog from a life of humiliation. Precious was born with a fifth leg protruding from her stomach, between her hind legs. The extra leg has six toes.
A pair of conjoined diamondback rattlesnakes, connected at the neck, were found at a construction site north of Tucson, Ariz. Veterinarians working at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum saved the life of the stronger rattlesnake after successfully separating it from its lame twin.
A cat's surplus of toes is fueling extra donations for a cash-strapped animal shelter. Daniel, an adorable, orange-and-white tabby, has inspired scores of fans across the country to donate $26 — $1 per toe — to the Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center so the struggling nonprofit can relocate to a new building. The typical cat has 18 toes, but Daniel has two extra on each paw due to a genetic mutation called polydactylism. The 9-month-old feline is just two toes short of tying the Guinness World record.
A Seoul National University team has just introduced the world to Tegon, a genetically engineered Beagle who glows green under UV light. Back in April 2009, the same university cloned Ruppy, above, who was the world's first transgenic beagle to carry fluorescent genes. Ruppy glows red. This time around, it took scientists over 4 years and $3 million dollars to create Tegon. It is hoped that cloned dogs will help find cures for human diseases because animals and dogs have over 250 shared illnesses.
Meet the long-nosed tree frog, a new species of frog discovered by Paul Oliver of Australia with funding from the National Geographic Society. But this isn't the only new species popping up these days ...
A zedonk, an unusual cross between a donkey and a zebra, is attracting attention at the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in Dahlonega after being born there in mid July. The animal, which has a zebra father and donkey mother, has black stripes prominently displayed on her legs and face.

This is a group of photo album of rare animals from around the world, presents to the people colorful, different patterns of species, not only shows the strange and mysterious nature, but also warns people to care for animals, in harmony with nature.
