|Common Name: ||two headed lamb |
|Scientific Name: ||Ovis aries bicephalus|
The prize of any farmyard freaks exhibit, this two headed lamb was still born to an Ingersoll farm in 1908. Nearly 100 years old, this piece is not only an interesting teratological display, but also a unique display of turn of the century taxidermy.
This specimen is a standard case of a parasitic twin. Within the uterus, it is possible for one zygote to absorb another, wholly, or as in this case, in part. The resulting zygote will continue to develop, as will the ‘parasitic’ parts of the absorbed twin.
This gaff is made to appear aged. It comes in it;s own display case and is accompanied by a show banner for the piece.
It;s a complete blow-off in a box, ready to go.
