Four legged

ANSWER: This one is Four Legged? WTF?

Feburary 13 1:12 am 2008
UPDATE: Stumpy, the duck who was born with four legs. Is now only three quarters the chap he used to be.
After catching one of his feet in chicken wire, he had to have the entire limb amputated. But the accident turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The new streamlined three-legged Stumpy can waddle much faster than before, enabling him to catch up with his lady friend Alice when he is feeling amorous.
And their owner believes it will not be long before the couple have a brood of ducklings to keep them on their toes.

It is wonderful that Stumpy has found love, said Nicky Janaway, who runs the Warrawee Duck Farm in the New Forest with her husband Paul.

Stumpy, who arrived in February, owed his extra limbs to a rare mutation. A similar duckling hatched in Australia five years ago died soon afterwards.

Mrs Janaway added: "We expected Stumpy to die within weeks so we cant believe he has survived into adulthood."

Below you see pics of Stumpy as a chick and then Stumpy And his Chick.

From one male to another, Way to go Stumpy!!!
