Venus, the chimera cat with "two faces"... a genetic anomoly where an organism has two sets of DNA (basically fraternal twins in one body).

Animals come in all shapes, sizes, colors and forms, but some stand out more that others, and chimeras arguably stand out most of all. These amazing creatures are the result of a genetic anomaly that leaves them with startling fur patterns and other features. Read on to learn more about these rare creatures, and how to identify one for yourself.

This is Venus, a 3 year old chimera cat.    Chimera cat is one individual organism, but genetically its own fraternal twin. A chimera is typically formed from four parent cells (either two fertilized eggs, or two early embryos that have fused together). When the organism forms, the cells that had already begun to develop in the separate embryos keep their original phenotypes and appearances. This means that the resulting animal is a mixture of tissues and can look like this cat.

Meet Venus the fascinating feline with the world’s most interesting face. She not only has two different colored eyes (known as heterochromia), but she also has two starkly different fur colors split exactly down the middle of her face.
