perhaps we have witnessed the birth of a new mutant

October 7, 2007

NORRISTOWN, Pa. – (AP) A pet store has bought a two-headed turtle from a collector and plans to keep it on display, the store manager said. The 2-month-old turtle, actually conjoined red-eared slider turtle twins, fits on a silver dollar.

It has two heads sticking out from opposite ends of its shell, along with a pair of front feet on each side.

The turtle is apparently healthy, and the species can live 15 to 20 years. The turtle has not yet been named.
