Different at Birth.

Baby with three hands:

A 2-month-old known as Jie-jie, was born with one right hand and two left hands. "How it happens? Van Heest estimated that one out of 200,000 babies are born with two thumbs on one hand and one out of 2 million have doubling at the wrist, resulting in two hands."

Baby born with two heads: "Rebeca was born with the undeveloped head of her twin. Fully developed twins born conjoined at the head are extremely rare, accounting for one of every 2.5 million births, but these twins, where one twin stops developing, are even rarer."
