A calf was born with four eyes and two mouths, leading crowds of people to gather to worship and meet the “divine” cow.
The creature was born at a farmer’s house in Bhagirathpura in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India.
The unique-looking calf drew plenty of attention, with witnesses deeming it a “divine miracle”.
The cow can drink milk from both of its mouths and is believed to be completely healthy.
Intrigued by the calf, the farm is reportedly “crowded” with visitors flocking to worship it.
In a video taken of the sweet creature, the calf can be seen standing on all fours and walking unsteadily as it becomes familiar with its home.

It also enjoys a cuddle with its owner at one point, nestled in the farmer’s arms.
In a further clip, people can be seen coming to take pictures with the famous calf, bending down to pose next to it.
This is not the first time a rare calf is born in India.
Only last month, a calf with two heads and three eyes was born in Bijapara village of Nabarangpur district in Odisha.

Earlier this year, a two-headed calf was born in Lazec, North Macedonia.
The calf has fused skulls, two pairs of eyes, two mouths, one pair of ears, and sucks milk simultaneously with two mouths.
Farmer Vasko Pestrovski said: “Early in the morning we heard that the cow was about to deliver. When she delivered, we saw the calf was rather extraordinary, with two heads.
“We immediately called on the veterinarian, he came and said it was a was a very natural phenomenon. The calf is functioning normally.
“I will keep it as long as it is alive, no matter how long. We will do everything to ensure this.”
Veterinarian Dr. Alaina Macdonald explained: “The rare development of two-headed offspring is directly related to the formation of identical twin embryos early in the pregnancy.
“There is no way to truly know how often this occurs, as this event would generally result in the early loss of pregnancy, and those pregnancies often are undetected. Indeed, it is exceptionally rare for the embryo to develop into a full-term fetus, and to survive the length of the gestation.
“It is not considered an inherited trait, because the offspring almost never live to reproductive age.”
