This beautiful cat called Yana has the face of two colors that makes you believe that her parents were out of ink while coloring her! Yana is a chimera cat.

Yana has a genetic anomaly that causes two fertilized zygotes (a cell that results from the union of the sperm and the ovum) to unite and form a single individual. Zygotes fuse in the early days and create a chimera cat, that is, a being with the double genetic material as if they are two individuals in one.

But they develop normally. This phenomenon can happen in any species, many individuals with chimerism do not realize they have it, unless they have very clear external features, such as an asymmetric pigmentation of the skin, as Yana has.
