An interesting problem in the study of anatomy was presented by a pair of Siamese lambs recently brought to our laboratory. The lambs were from a Shropshire ewe that had given birth to normally developed twins the previous season. The Siamese lambs were delivered with much difficulty and as a consequence, they were damaged at the region of fusion causing an internal disruption of their organs. Although the lambs were alive immediately after delivery, the damage to their organs brought death within a few minutes.
