In the realm of record-holding two-headed calves, the oldest one lived for an impressive 17 months and 15 days or 534 days, according to The Guinness Book of World Records. This timeframe is based on documented cases with confirmed birthdates. However, historical accounts also mention instances of two-headed adult cows.

Despite the challenges posed by the calf’s condition, the dedicated owners are committed to providing the best possible care.

“These beautiful girls are still alive, my brother is trying to feed them this way (they can’t eat themselves) we will see what happens.”

In the face of limited options, offering a little tender loving care aims to make this baby’s brief life as special and peaceful as possible.
