From a two-headed cow to a piglet with TESTICLES for eyes, here are the strangest creatures of 2016…
1. The two-headed snake
Medusa is a rare and perfectly symmetrical two-headed snake most likely the result of twin babies that failed to separate.
The Albino Honduran Milk snake often gets itself into scrapes… with ITSELF.
Experts revealed that the reptile doesn’t know how to share its food between its two heads, often leading to ferocious confrontation.
2. The shark with a penis on its head
Shark with penis on its forehead discovered deep in the oceans
Earlier this month, a deep sea shark with a penis that pops in and out of its forehead was filmed in the wild for the first time.
Scientists were astonished to see a pointy-nosed blue chimaera – or ghost shark – alive in its natural habitat.
3. The pig with testicles for eyes
In February, a photo of a pig with two hairy egg-like bulges on its face emerged online.
Surprisingly, the rest of the pig’s face, including its snout formed normally, but its body was unusually small.
4. The mutant monkey pig
Experts blamed pollution as the culprit of this bizarre mutation in January.
In the viral snap, the mutant piglet appeared to have a monkey’s head, a small snout and a protruding lower jaw – leading it to being branded a “monkey pig”.
5. The two-headed cow
Oddly, two-headed cows aren’t as rare as you might think – as there have been numerous cases over the year.
One farmer got the shock of his life when he spotted this bovine beast was spotted in Los Conquistadores, Argentina.
6. The goat with a human face
Earlier this year, this unique specimen was spotted in central Argentina.
Agriculture workers insisted that the creature was a goat, but many couldn’t shake off the fact it appeared to have a tumour-like human face.
7. The Sorting Hat spider
When this spider was discovered in October, it was named after a character from Harry Potter.
Excited boffins couldn’t help but notice that the eight-legged species resembled J.K. Rowling’s Sorting Hat.
