A mutant calf born with a “human face” has been captured on camera in a bizarre video.
The calf, which was reportedly born with a small nose and mouth and resembled a human face, was born in the village of Villa Ana in the northern Argentine province of Santa Fe.
However, the mutant cow is thought to have only lived for a couple of hours.
Footage shows the calf lying on the grass while the cameraman held its deformed head up by its ear.
Its unusual face appears to resemble a grumpy human.
The animal’s eyes had large red rings around them while its pupils appeared to bulge out of its head.
According to a local specialist, the calf was born with a malformed skull which gave it its eerie appearance.
The animal appeared unable to hold its own head up.
It is unclear if the animal was taken to a specialist to establish more about its malformed condition following its death.
Genetics expert Nicolas Magnago told local media that “it could be a rare genetic mutation”.
He added: “[A] mutation is a change in the DNA sequencing that was transferred to the cow’s offspring.
“It was a spontaneous mutation caused by the action of mutagens, physical, chemical or biological agents, which altered its genetic sequencing.”
It comes after a mutant creature outbreak sparked mass confusion.
