A goat was born with four forelegs and two hind legs in Chaohu, Anhui Province, eastern China few days ago.
The unusual animal, who was nicknamed a spider goat, was born to two normal goats and his owner is still wondering what caused the mutation.
Xiao Qibin, owner of the six-legged baby goat, started running his farm about a year ago and owns more than 400 goats, but only this one became the talk of the country.
Mr Xiao said: “During the labour, I saw the nanny goat was having difficulty. I saw two legs came out at first, but surprisingly another four followed when the kid was fully born
