A dog with an unusual condition of having one ear and two mouths with fully developed teeth, has finally found a loving home after years of wandering. The head of the American Animal Rescue Association has adopted the poor canine named Toad, who was reported to have been missing for quite some time after living in an animal shelter in Oklahoma City two years ago. This heartwarming news was reported by Odditycentral.
On February 18th, locals found Toad and took him back to their home. Upon being brought to the shelter, the staff immediately recognized Toad but were surprised to see a noticeable difference in his right ear. Toad only has one ear, but he has two mouths. After examination, it was discovered that a second mouth had grown from Toad’s ear, complete with fully formed teeth and saliva. However, the secondary mouth did not function like a regular mouth because it lacked jaws to open and close. Despite this oddity, Toad can still hear sounds with his ear. Heather Hernandez, who is the head of the Mutt Misfits Animal Rescue Association, adopted Toad. She recalls being stunned upon seeing the unique creature, likening it to something out of a science-fiction movie. During a check-up at the vet, it was determined that some of the teeth in Toad’s ear caused discomfort, so they had to be extracted. The veterinary staff thought that there were only two teeth, but they later discovered there were more. The teeth in the ear that were causing discomfort were removed, but the ones on the ear’s side could not be taken out, as they seemed connected to the skull. Hernandez’s love for Toad remained strong despite the unusual mutation. To her, Toad is a special and rare creature.
