Veterinarians reportedly told the goat's owner, farmer Zoran Paparic, that the condition is likely the result of an underdeveloped twin. The kid was also born with male and female reproductive organs, ITV said Wednesday

"I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy." Papariz told the Daily Mail

It's unlikely that Octogoat will survive long term, but has a chance of living for several years, veterinarians told Paparic
