One-Eyed ‘Cyclops’ Puppy With Two Tongues And No Nose Born In Philippines

In the Philippines, a weird one-eyed dog with two bulging enormous tongues and no nose was born. Unfortunately, the puppy did not live more than a day. On February 6, it was delivered alongside another seemingly normal baby in the country’s Aklan region. Aside from its unique one eye, it couldn’t sip milk from its mother since it lacked a nose. Amie de Martin, a local resident, claimed they gave it puppy food and took it to a doctor in the hopes that the small canine, called ‘Cyclops,’ would live.

It didn’t make it until the next day, d.y.i.n.g about 10 p.m. that night because it couldn’t breathe correctly. According to the veterinarian for the bereaved pet owner, the mother dog may have consumed chemicals while pregnant, which caused the puppy’s ɪʟʟɴᴇss. ‘The vet indicated Cyclops’ mother probably ate something terrible,’ Amie explained. However, Cyclops’ mother is a ᴍᴇɴᴏᴘᴀᴜsᴀʟ puppy, so that may be another explanation.

‘Cyclops was unable to sip milk from her. We had to use a dropper and powdered milk to feed him.’ Instead of burying the ᴅᴇᴄᴇᴀsᴇᴅ dog in the garden, Amie chose to keep it in a glass box as a keepsake for the cherished animal. The puppy was thought to have Cyclopia, an uncommon ɪʟʟɴᴇss that affects mammals and other animals. It can be caused by a genetic abnormality or chemicals that interfere with brain development.
