Dog with human-like face
In March 2018, an online user shared a photo of a dog with a very human-like face. That is an image of a dog named Yogi, posted on Twitter by owner Chantal Desjardins, living in Massachusetts, USA. In just a short time, the photo quickly went viral with thousands of comments.
Yogi has a very strange face with big eyes, clear pupils, a short nose, and a human-like mouth. When looking at Yogi’s photo, some people were surprised, others felt scared because the dog’s face was very soulful, just like a human.
Some even compared and confirmed that Yogi is very similar to some celebrities such as actor Jake Gyllenhaal or pop phenomenon Ed Sheeran.
After the photo of a human-faced dog caused a “storm” on social networks, many people also expressed doubts about the authenticity of the photo. Because it was too hard to believe, they thought that the photo of the Yogi dog was edited, photoshopped or face transplanted to look like a human, or simply because the angle of the shot caused the dog’s face to change.
Cat with 2 faces on the same head
In the natural world, finding animals with 2 faces or 2 heads fused on the same body is not too strange, but in domestic pets such as dogs and cats, it is quite rare. In December 2017, a cat born with two faces on the same head shocked many people.
This strange cat was named Bettie Bee which is based on the name Janus of a Roman god having two faces. It was born in the Eastern Cape, South Africa on 12/12/2017. Bettie Bee has 3 eyes, 2 nose, 2 mouth, looks like a split face.
According to the researchers, the cat Bettie Bee has a special deformity that causes the skull to be doubled, has a protein called SHH that signals genes that control the width of the face. The face becomes too large or begins to double if SHH is acting abnormally.
Immediately after being born, the cat Bettie Bee was sent by the owner to a special care center for cats. Normally, these deformed animals will not live long, but fortunately for Bettie Bee, it still has a high chance of survival.
Shortly after being shared, the image of Bettie Bee cat quickly received great attention from netizens. Many people couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the cat with 2 faces on the same head, others felt that Bettie Bee looked very cute and hoped that the cat could live long with its owner.
