Frog-Like Baby

This bizarre-looking baby was born in Charikot, the headquarters of Dolakha district. The baby, however, died after half an hour of its birth.The baby weighed 2kg at birth and was born after the normal nine-month gestation period. Medically explained, the baby has a condition called anencephaly, a neural tube defect with no proper brain formation. That's why women are advised to take folate in early pregnancy.
