Toad, a five-year-old grey pitbull mix, suffers from a very rare deformity – she has a second mouth, complete with teeth and salivating glands, growing on the side of her head, where her right year should be.
Toad arrived at the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare shelter two years ago, as a stray. The staff there realized almost immediately that there was something different about her, but it wasn’t until they sedated her and performed a through checkup of her right ear that they realized that wasn’t actually a normal ear, but a second mouth, with fully developed teeth and saliva coming out of it. It doesn’t function as a normal ear, because it doesn’t have a jaw to allow it to open and close, but Toad can’t hear with it either.
“We originally thought it had two teeth but we did a dental cleaning on the ear a few weeks ago and discovered it has several. A few of the ear teeth had cracked, which caused some discomfort, but once we removed the broken teeth she was good as new,” added Hernandez, who is also the founder of Mutt Misfits Animal Rescue Society, the animal charity that took Toad in.
Only two teeth are clearly visible in Toad’s second mouth, but her caretakers say that there are more of them deeper inside, some of which had to be removed because they had cracked and were causing the animal pain. However, the two large teeth cannot be removed, because they are attached to her skull.
