Interesting article.
Cyclops shark

The Cyclops shark is an exception. While rare, "cyclopia" is a real developmental anomaly in which only one eye develops.

One of the most grotesque pictures I've ever seen of developmental defects was of a baby that was born with nothing but one giant (malformed) eye on it's face. Needless to say it wasn't born live.

What effect does cyclopsy have on brain functionality I wonder? Would it make everything in life seem 'straight forward' ha ha.
