Snake Baby

from Takeshi Yamada
This well-preserved specimen is a "Snake Baby" or a human baby with snake-like body with multiple serious birth defects. Specifically, this baby has suffered genetic defects such as snake-like skin ("ichthyosis" or fish-like scale skin), tiny lizard-like teeth, elongated six-fingered hands, elongated skull, and undeveloped snake-like lower body ("Sirenomelia" or mermaid syndrome). For the purpose of the genetic study and research, it is preserved in the cryogenic status at a major genetic research laboratory in California now. Its tissue sample is also preserved at major genetic research centers including New York Central Genetic Research Center in the United States.
