Local vets are still confused as to what could have caused the goat’s rare condition. Cyclopia occurs when the orbital sockets form incorrectly in the mother’s womb due to one of several developmental abnormalities or traumas, and is often associated with other deformities.

But in humans, babies born with the condition usually die shortly after they’re born.

Animals with cyclopia have garnered attention before, like the infamous Cyclops Shark, which was found dead back in 2011. A few years later, scientists were able to study a different goat with cyclopia, though it only lived for 10 hours after birth.
