Now this is creepy.

A mountain lion with with a second set of teeth and whiskers growing out of its forehead was legally shot and killed in Idaho last week after the big cat allegedly attacked the hunter’s dog:

Sorry, not from an episode of the “X Files.” Scientists think the deformity might have been a cojoined twin that died in the womb or a teratoma tumor which allows “teeth, hair, fingers and toes to grow.”

Or probably caused by global warming, right?

    The brains and bodies of mammals and egg bearers are capable of adapting to very unusual situations.
    I recall reading about Mike, the Headless Chicken aka Miracle Mike. A Wyandotte Chicken, born april 1945. Mike lived for 18 months in that condition, growing from 2.5lb to nearly 8lbs. It is thought that the chicken got his abilities from undamaged nerves in his spinal cord.

    Mike went on a road tour with his owner, and got his picture on the covers of Time and Life. Mike was put on display to the public at .25 cents a peep.
    At height of his popularity, he earned $4500. per month ($47,700 today!!).

      Sounds like he had more on the ball than the average democrat these days.

    • TJG

      Oh yeah, Mike is a local celebrity. He was a chicken that the farmer was slaughtering for supper, and he (the farmer) knew that his wife loved the neck of the chicken the best, so when decapitating said Mike, he tried to cut as close to the head as possible, thus preserving more of that neck meat for his wife. Turns out chickens don’t need their brains, and he lived! They had to feed him through an eye dropper, obviously, because he didn’t have a beak, and the pictures of him are just bizarre!

    As an avid hunter, I’m jealous …. what a trophy!🏆

  • Kevin Giltrud

    If the hunter is or was a sailor or Marine. They could call in Leroy Jethro Gibbs and his intrepid team at NCIS!

    Even if Gibbs just shrugs. Takes a sip of bourbon and continues working on his boat in the basement.

    Amazing resemblance to my sister in law: In looks and personality,

  • MrApple

    Come on people let’s find a way to blame the NRA for this one too.

  • ClinkinKY

    PETA to claim that an endangered species, “Mountain Lions with extra set of teeth growing out of their forehead” was “executed” by NRA member.

  • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

    Looks like a chimera.

    Great, Ceil 2.0 to the keep the ignorant masses distracted.

  • Maxgoof

    I’m surprised the lion survived to adulthood.

    “Hunter shoots mountain lion with second set of teeth growing from forehead”

    Most hunters I know would’ve used a gun…I’m so sheltered.

    When they mount it, it has to be in the high 4 figures in the oddities market.

  • Girl who talks with her claws

    So have the Leftist loons put on sackcloth & ashes and started mourning the death of the mountain lion, and put a price on the head of the poor sap who was protecting his dog when he shot it?

    I’m trying to diagram Twitchy’s headline for this story. How exactly did the hunter with teeth growing out of his forehead use them to sh00t this mountain lion?

    Gee – it’s almost like you think nobody will multiply $87/hr * 5 hr/day * 30 days/mo and get 13050 and realize that YOU ARE LYING THROUGH YOUR TEETH.

    Yep. I think is has to be caused by “Man made global warming” That explains everything…

  • Evie1949

    One guy made news when he went to his doctor with a complaint of foot pain – he had extra teeth growing in his heel (don’t blame Desenex foot powder). This is relatively common in humans so I suppose having it happen in the animal world – not all that remarkable.
