A five-legged lamb was born at a Welsh farm last week, becoming an internet sensation.

The lamb with an extra limb was born on Thursday to farmer Bethan Davies of Rhiwlas Farm in mid Wales.

The animal named Jake was healthy and doing well, the owner said.

In a video filmed by Davies, Jake can be seen hopping around the enclosure using his four limbs, with the extra one dangling at the front.

Jake isn’t the first five-legged lamb to be born in the UK though.

A similar occurrence happened on a farm near Newcastle upon Tyne in England back in 2013, when a five-legged lamb named Quinto was born.
