An eight-legged goat with both female and male reproductive organs has been born in northeast Croatia.

Zoran Paparic, a farmer in Kutjevo, whose goat Sarka gave birth to the unusual kid, called the birth a “miracle of nature.”

“I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy,” Paparic said, according to InSerbia.

Local veterinarians told the farmer that the extra legs probably were the result of an underdeveloped twin sibling. Sarka also delivered two healthy kids.

“This is her fourth time and she always has triplets,” Paparic said, inSerbia reported.

A Daily Mail headline termed the octogoat “Billy the Squid.”

The goat is unlikely to survive its first week, but if it does, it could live for two or three years, veterinarians said.

Paparic hopes to keep the goat as a pet, if it survives, InSerbia reported.

“He is trying to stand on his feet, but lacks strength,” Paparic added.

A video of the goat is on YouTube.
