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

“I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things,” farmer Zoran Paparic told reporters, according to the Daily Mail. “Then I called my neighbor to make sure that I am not crazy.”

Vets say they don’t believe the goat will survive its first week, but if it does, it could go on to live two or three years.
