There was shock recently when a baby with four legs was given birth to in a hospital in western Mozambique.
According to Magazine Independente, doctors are now assessing the baby to see if the child can be operated upon. The baby, whose sex was not given, was born in Manica Province.
"The mother had a normal birth and was not suspicious of anything during the gestation period," said the magazine, which is published in Portuguese.
This is not the first time an abnormal birth was recorded in the area. A baby with three legs was also born in the province this month, said the weekly.
