We recently covered a two-headed bull shark fetus that was found by a fisherman and described by scientists in a journal. That story got more than ninety comments and more than four thousand Facebook likes.

I find it amazing that any creature can survive with two heads, but I suppose one must be dominant while the other follows meekly. Not that they could fight it out anyway. I'm not sure if I should feel sorry for them or if they're perfectly happy with two heads.

In the 50s our neighbors had a two headed calf taxidermy on their wall. It was born on the farm but it did not survive.

It's not that rare among reptiles. For probably ten years, we had a two-headed gopher snake in our zoo and it was a great draw to get people to actually look at reptiles.

Only one head ate and seemed dominant but both heads used the tongue to sense pheromones.

When that snake died, we joked (semi-seriously) about stuffing it, getting Disney studios to animate it and keeping it on exhibit!

I very much dislike and usually pass up pledges.

I keep my word. That's enough,

But if they're going to do the 1,000 gallons thing.....

Ok, I pledged

Now, let's see, I'm looking through my kitchen and being conscious of the things I eat and buy and, now what was that? shrinking my water foot print? Ok, I pledge that as soon as I finish this no green star
comment, I'm going to go into my bathroom, get my foot wet and tiptoe out. Then the pledge will be all done
ROFLOL

Help Save the Colorado River


You can help restore freshwater ecosystems by pledging to cut your water footprint. For every pledge, Change the Course will restore 1,000 gallons back to the Colorado River.

Oops! I think I picked up on the wrong article. Well, they were side by side.

Did you ever hear the phrase , "two heads are better than one".

I was doing it all one headed. lol

Nature is often fascinating, hope this one survives.

Looks like the turtle may survive if not in the wild but the other ones will have trouble in the wild when born like this and sadly the Siamese twins did not survive. Lol, Zee Kallah, this certainly can happen with both articles that you mentioned.
