    Never seen a deer like that, but I've seen it several times in cattle.

    Looks real. It is a parasitic twin. Parasitic twins occur when a twin embryo begins developing in utero, but the pair does not fully separate, and one embryo is dominant. Same thing that happens with conjoined twins except one embryo doesn't fully develop. It happens in a lot of animals, even humans.
