A mutant calf with a “human-like face” was born on a farm in a remote village in Argentina in recent days.
It has been reported that the calf had a deformed skull which gave rise to this appearance.
Rare genetic mutation
Nicholas Magnago, a genetics expert, told media that the animal – which died shortly after being born - could have a “rare genetic mutation”.
“A mutation is a change in the DNA sequencing that was transferred to the cow’s offspring.”
“It was a spontaneous mutation caused by the action of mutagens, physical, chemical or biological agents, which altered its genetic sequencing.” he explained.
