just dont know what the point in a fake pic would be, anyways these are common, just wondering if one head thinks its female and the other male...

People two headed/faced/bodied animals are not cryptids stop posting them here. this is a photo of a cow in the Ripley's museum just because its weird does not make it a cryptid.

I saw a taxidermied '2 headed' calf like that in the Hall of Horns Museum in Texas. You could see the the stiches where the two heads were joined together. I'm not saying that this things a fake-but it sure looks phony!

egerren, freak, that cow is actually lucky. If it didn't have a second head, it would be hamburgers because almost nobody wants to eat a deformed animal. So that cow should be considered lucky.

Yes Guinevere, you are correct this two headed calf is in a oddities museum in St.petersburg FL. Do you remember the body of the lady that self combusted in the same museum ? and yes the calf is real.

mutated animal. not much to see here
Comment icon #18 Posted by cryptozoologist on 8 July, 2005, 19:56
Its a model or statue, look at it's fur, it doesn't stick out like it should, it must've been run over by the floor waxer...
Comment icon #17 Posted by deanwam on 2 July, 2005, 22:04
Its real....victim of a birth defect and a bad taxidermy job..hence the reason it looks fake.
Comment icon #16 Posted by glitzgero on 1 July, 2005, 8:01
it looks fake because its a replica, but it did live
Comment icon #15 Posted by jeenuh on 22 June, 2005, 22:25
Ive seen one of those before, It's real, it's just a birth defect. This bar my parents used to go to all the time had a stuffed one on top of the piano and I had gotten really close to it and it's real, I'm sure there are alot of hoax's but it's quite common.
Comment icon #14 Posted by nozzie on 22 June, 2005, 1:28
dude thats in utah (i live there) it was stuffed after its death in 1986

I saw this calf,(or one a lot like it at Ripley's in MO). In the photo next to it though the calf appeared to be solid in color. Upon close inspection, (as close as the glass case would allow), I could make out very distinct marks near the heads an dnecks that could only be stitch marks. Also the spots on the calf didn't match up. I suppose it could just be bad taxadermy but it looked to me that an extra head had been sewn on. I do think there was a two headed calf but this wasn't the original.

horrification is right ^ ^
Comment icon #11 Posted by undefined_innocence on 5 May, 2005, 0:26
There have been quite a few cases of this. Cows for some reason are easy to come across in birth defects.

I actually knew a farmer who had a 2-headed calf also, it lived for about 2 weeks, it couldent even support the weight of it's own head, if your interested in searching for info on it, the location was Berlin, New York.
Comment icon #9 Posted by egerren on 23 April, 2005, 20:47
Awww, poor thing. I hope it wasn't in to much pain.
Comment icon #8 Posted by horrification on 24 March, 2005, 19:25
kinda looks fake..but i cant rele say
Comment icon #7 Posted by Doctor_Strangelove on 19 March, 2005, 8:59
I once saw one like that at an old museum, the tour guide said it only lived for 2 days though.
Comment icon #6 Posted by guinevere on 17 February, 2005, 22:20
This photo is real, I went to Orlando to Ripleys belive it or not and this actul cow was there, its just a birth defect.
Comment icon #5 Posted by sockmonster on 8 February, 2005, 0:40
i have seen a real two headed sheep and a cow with five legs. the lamb was still born but the cow made to be old enough to be eaten!! (yuk) I think its like siamese twins that haven't seperated properly. The farmer who own the sheep had it stuffed ... it looks fake now cos f the way they did it. not convinced this photo is real though
Comment icon #4 Posted by divinedragon_85 on 30 January, 2005, 11:20
could this thing actually lived long enough to stand...looks pretty young and I've lived on a calfs have a hard enough time standing in the first few days....even without the extra head
Comment icon #3 Posted by skepticalbeliever88 on 23 January, 2005, 0:34
it does look really fake....the second head in the background looks added on like on a comp. or sumthing....
Comment icon #2 Posted by ark of covenant on 19 December, 2004, 1:03

Comment icon #1 Posted by crazy_boy on 11 December, 2004, 23:41
