Two headed calf.  Two-Headed Calf, Two-Butted Lamb

We visited the museum that features the 2-butted lamb and 2-headed calf.

2-butted Lamb. Two-Butted Lamb

Just wanted to provide a picture of the "Lamb with Two Butts" in Jackson County. The little guy is stuffed, enclosed in glass and sits right next to the calf with two heads. Other than being dusty and looking more like a stuffed-animal stitched together by some warped person, I am still really proud to say I saw a Lamb with Two Butts.

Two-headed Calf

There is a display of a 2-headed calf and a 2-butted lamb in the small roadside museum just before you reach Maquoketa Caves State park in Jackson County. Worth a good giggle.
