#TSRShadySpecies: You may already know, as we keep you up to date with the latest news, we also have to keep you updated with all the latest animal species out there. The latest to make headlines is a recently born two-headed tortoise in Massachusetts.

According to CBS Boston, the Cape Wildlife Center He recently shared a photo of a baby two-headed terrapin. The tortoise, which has a condition called bicephaly, hatched at a nesting site in Barnstable. The condition has been described in a similar way to human twins who are joined at birth. This particular tortoise was born with two heads and six legs.

Cape Wildlife Center said: “Animals with this rare condition do not always survive long or have a good quality of life, but these two have given us reason to be optimistic. They have been in our care for just over two weeks and continue to be bright and active. They are eating, swimming, and gaining weight every day. It’s impossible to get into the heads of these two, but they seem to work together to navigate their environment. “

The wildlife center also noted that the tortoise has two spines that fuse lower down on the body. As the days go by, they hope to learn more about this rare species.
