Caption: Two-headed calf. This stuffed two-headed calf was born with a birth defect known as bicephalism. When alive, the animal had two separate brains but was able to share control of one body. However it moved erratically and appeared disorientated. This specimen has been dissected along the abdomen and internal organs removed. Photographed at the Fragonard Museum, Alfort National Veterinary School, Paris, France.
