A mutant lamb born with just two fully-formed legs learned to walk like a person.

Initially, the two-legged lamb would shuffle around on its stomach as it followed its mum to feed.

However, it later learned how to walk on just two legs after its hind legs did not form properly and the sheep was left with stumps.

The lamb, born near the city of Hulunbuir in the northern Chinese province of Mongolia, sadly died after 40 days.

According to news site Baidu, the sheep died from gas build-up on April 25.

The owner said the lamb would try to move around on its front knees before making the leap of walking on two legs.

It was able to move around freely and even ducked under a fence to enter a pen.

When it would leave a pen, the lamp dropped to its knees and slid under the bar before joining the rest of the flock.

And when the lamb would need a rest it would lower its body to shift the weight of its front legs and instead rest on the stumps.

It comes after a mutant cow was born with two heads, spooking the farmer when the mother cow gave birth to the calf.

Villager Vasko Popovski said the calf was born with four eyes, two noses, two mouths but only one brain.

The heads are believed to be conjoined through the skull, and the calf is still showing strong vital signs after its birth on April 16.

Despite the two heads, the calf was seen walking on its four legs and taking tiny steps in the barn, and later drinking from both mouths.

It's common for animals born with deformities to sadly died shortly after birth due to complications.

Sasho Gjorgjievski from the Veterinary Clinic Filipov, who delivered the calf, said that the calf was "functioning well".

However, the vet added: "Most animals born with such anomalies rarely live very long.

"As it grows, its needs will change and the question will be whether it can survive. However, nothing is known yet and we hope it will live longer."
