It’s hard to take anyone seriously when they start talking about a real life cyclops, but in the case of a one-eyed goat born in a village in India, the story is all too real. This isn’t just a goat with one normal eye and one that’s missing either, it was born with a rare condition known as cyclopia, which means the orbits of the eye don’t develop into two cavities.

The condition also happens to typically cause a deformity of the nose. High levels of toxins present during development play a huge role in the condition occurring. Anyone or anything born with this condition usually die pretty early on. Veterinarians didn’t think this goat would survive more than a few days, but it’s managed to outlive their expectations and has become a local attraction in the process.
