This is the moment a mutant lamb which has been born with five legs stumbles around the farm where it was born.
The startling scene was recorded at a farm owned by Umit Uysal in the Buldan district of the Denizli province of western Turkey.
Uysal has reportedly worked in the animal husbandry industry for around 35 years and told reporters he had never seen anything like the lamb before.

The breeder reportedly called a veterinarian to come to his farm as soon as he spotted the lamb’s extra limb.
The vet is said to have carried out a thorough examination before declaring the lamb fully healthy.
In the video, the lamb can be seen with an extra limb hanging from between its two front legs.
The animal stumbles to the ground on the uneven surface before getting back to its feet and walking around.
Local media report cases of lambs being born with an extra leg and managing to lead a normal life and staying healthy have previously been documented.
Local media state the little lamb has become the focus of attention in the local community.
