A kitten born with two faces in West Virginia — named Two Face by its owners — has been given a 50 percent chance of survival by a local vet.
The two-faced kitten was born in Charleston, West Virginia, and was brought to the local vet shortly afterwards because its mother refused to nurse it.
Each face is a complete separate face, meaning it has two noses, two mouths and four eyes. The vet, Erica Drake, said she thought that the kitten was born with a rare condition called diprosopus.
According to Drake, both of the kitten’s mouths operate independently, and she suspects that in addition, each mouth has a separate oesophagus leading to the stomach.
