Two Headed

Post by David George » Tue Mar 21, 2006 12:27 pm

We have heard of two headed dragons and so on but a golden coin turtle found in China had two heads!The creature most likely developed its unusual anatomy while still in the egg. Its embryo began to split in two the process that gives rise to identical twins but then failed to fully separate.Even on such two headed turtle was found in South Africa.Even two headed snakes were found in Spain and it was thougt that two headed snakes never existed but this discovery was confirmed by scientist.My brother's friend also said that he had seen two headed rat snakes probably this is how the many headed snakes came to Hindu mythology.The picture shows the two headed turtle found in China.

Makes you wonder which brain controls everything, and what happens when the two brains send conflicting messages.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Two headed freaks always attract attention. I read about the two headed coin turtle displayed in the picture by david. The owner says that the heads co operate well and even eat at the same time.
Experts are of the opinion that chances of survival is very low but they get on well in captivity
