A ranch in Anadarko was the home to a birth that has a half a million to one odds of happening.

The Myers family ranch is now home to a six legged calf. A few weeks ago one of the calves born on their ranch had two extra legs coming out if its shoulders.

They said it is a rare condition called polymelia, which is a birth defect of the limbs. The family calls the calf ‘Spiderman’ and said the legs have not impacted his life.

They also said they would have the extra legs removed if they endangered the calf’s life.
