(Meredith) - A goat born with two heads is the newest addition to a family farm in Wisconsin. 

The goat, named Janus, was born Sunday at Nueske Farms in Wittenberg, Wisconsin. 

The Nueske family believes Janus was supposed to be a set of twin goats, but the eggs didn't fully split. 

They feed Janus from a bottle, and get this -- both heads eat. As for the name Janus, there's a story behind that too.

"It's after a Greek god that has two heads, and it means duality, beginning and ending. I thought it fit pretty well," one of Janus' owners, Jocelyn Nueske, told WSAW-TV.

The family wants to keep the goat as a pet, but there's a 50% chance he'll make it to adulthood.
