According to farm owner Suparat Jitlang, the goat gave birth to a mutant goat. Entering the cattle pen, the woman was shocked when she saw a newborn with one eye and no nose.
Thai farmers were puzzled after a rare one-eyed goat was born on Monday, February 27, at Farmsook Homestay in the local province of Wutai Thani. It is reported by The Mirror.
Farm owner Suparat Jitlang said the goat gave birth to a mutant goat. Entering the cattle pen, the woman was shocked when she saw a newborn with one eye and no nose.
“I have been raising goats for a long time, but this is the first time I have come across this,” the owner of the farm explained, adding that, with the exception of an unusual appearance, the cub seemed to be generally healthy.
In the published footage, the goat bleats while being cared for. The animal does not have nostrils, it breathes through the mouth and constantly suffocates, swallowing air.
Cyclops in Thailand
According to the researchers, this is a case of cyclopia, a rare genetic defect in which the brain does not divide correctly into two hemispheres during development.
The owner of the farm fears that the goat will soon die of exhaustion due to breathing problems. It is known that with cyclopia there is a low level of survival, but the born goat is still alive.
In this condition, there are various physical anomalies, for example, there may be no mouth or nose, in such cases, newborns often die of suffocation some time after birth.
In 2017, a goat was born in India with the same disease, she had a large eye in the middle of her forehead and only one full ear.
Recall that during sleep, whales close only one eye. The researchers found out where, how and how long whales sleep in the ocean depths.
Focus previously reported on the largest massacre in the ocean – killer whales feasted on the livers of 17 sharks off the coast of South Africa. This case is considered the largest standoff of killer whales against sharks.
