The mutant calf - whose two faces were attached at the skull - was born with four eyes and two mouths and was fed by farm workers using a modified bottle.

Zica Soares, wife of the farm-owner in Caiaponia, told local media: ''I never imagined a calf like that would be born on the farm, we are surprised.

''The vet says that we need to either put the calf down or look after him until the end. He is very bad, really weak, but I am looking after him.''

The calf - who had two functioning mouths - was hand-fed milk for five days by farm workers before sadly dying.

Local vet Daniel Ribeiro Camargos said the birth was ''very rare'' but probably a result of inbreeding.
