Women WithFOUR leg

Josephine Myrtle who was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee in 1868 was known as the four legged woman.

Myrtle’s extra legs resulted from an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as dipygus, which gave her two complete bodies from the waist down. She had two small pelves side-by-side, and each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She could move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking.
