This massive Spring lamb and has named 'Lambo' after tipping the scales at 20lbs - the second biggest ever born in Britain.

The animal is three times the size of other newborn lambs and weighs the same as an average human toddler.

Farmer John Grigg, 51, helped deliver Lambo himself and was immediately shocked by his huge size.

From the news article;

"Mr Grigg and his family have decided to spare him the chop and will keep him as a pet at their Neverdown Farm, near Bideford, Devon."

I've said it once, I'll say it a thousand times, the distinction between the animals we consume and the animals we dote on is completely arbitrary, and logically indefensible. I personally like the term moral schizophrenia.

I believe that cloning on an industrial scale would not be cost effective. Also, exponential human population growth cannot continue without catastrophic effects.

Cute little thing, well not little big.

I don't think we will be able to produce the food needed if the population keeps growing or supply the water for it.
