Golden coin turtle found in China. According to press reports, the turtle's two heads cooperate well and can even eat at the same time. Its owner says the reptile eats more than one-headed turtles do and has grown over the past year.
The creature most likely developed its unusual anatomy while still in the egg. Its embryo began to split in twoâthe process that gives rise to identical twins but then failed to fully separate.
Experts say survival rates for two-headed animals tend to be lower in the wild. But in captivity such animals can prosper.
