If a deer with no eyes is a 'no-eye-deer' - what do you call one with six legs?
Such a creature has been discovered after being attacked by two dogs in Everett Springs, Georgia in the US.
The fawn has two distinct pelvises and uses one leg from each to walk.
It also had two tails, but one was amputated because of the injuries it suffered during the attack.
The six-legged deer is recovering after being attacked by two dogs
It is now recovering at the West Rome Animal Clinic, in Rome, Georgia, where vet Dan Pate said: 'It is really an anomaly. It appears it had an identical twin that didnít form all the way.
'Somehow it has a fairly normal gait, although the centre legs seem to get in the way.'
The deer was separated from its mother by two dogs being walked by their owners Melissa and Alan Dunagan.
'It wasnít until after we put the dogs back in the house and were about to release the fawn that we realised it had six legs,' said Mrs Dunagan.
It is likely to be to be taken the deer facility at the University of Georgia once it has recovered.
