The weird baby looked at the world with its only eye, took a breath of air with the trunk that was growing on its forehead, and died. Doctors of one of St.Petersburg hospitals told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper that it was an absolutely normal woman that gave birth to the incredible mutant-baby, which could be compared to a Cyclops. The female creature was covered with thick hair; it had only one eye in the center of its forehead and a small trunk that was growing on the head above the eye.
"This is a unique incident, - gynecologist Ivan Rylchikov said. - Such deviations are possible; they can be caused with a variety of reasons. The formation of the eyes and brain starts during the first week of the embryonic growth. The presence of certain chemical substances, various medications, in the organism of the mother can exert a strong influence on the fetus too. Tetracycline, which is strongly not recommended for use during pregnancy, can cause a certain deviation in the physical development of a child. The medicine affects the development of the fetus's bones and teeth; even a small dose can be extremely dangerous for an unborn child. A Cyclops is not viable - they do not live longer than only one week. In addition, nature has its own regulator. If the development of the fetus takes an unusual turn, the probability of a miscarriage increases a lot. This is the way that Mother Nature uses to kill mutants in the womb," the specialist said.

notice, this is from pravda, and also noticethat no date is given for the event. Did it happen in the soviet era? Under the tsar? Currently? A few years ago? Last week? No mention. In all probability, this is a giant hoax.

Nope this picture is real. I saw a biography of Peter the Great "Russian Monarch", who collected strange oddities, giant skeletons, mutants, etc. He had a museum full of these "freaks". (not trying to be cruel). This picture was shown in the documentry tv show on A & E network.
