A diprosopus monster fetus was delivered pervaginumin pluriparus non-descriptive crossbred cattle, which was presented with persistent straining and dystocia. The fully developed dead female fetus consisted of four eyes (tetraophthalmus), two pairs of nostrils, two mouths, each with a tongue and two ears. The neck, thorax, abdomen and limbs were grossly normal. Manual removal of diprosopus fetus was done successfully per-vaginally through dilated birth canal.
