Meet Two-Headed Turtle, Thelma and Louise


Meet The Two-Headed Turtle, Thelma and Louise

A two-headed turtle made its way to the San Antonio Zoo this week after being born on June 18 along with their three siblings.

Aptly named Thelma and Louise, the Texas cooter is thought to have been twins which did not separate, says zoo curator Craig Pelke. The result was two heads and one body.

Veterinarians say the turtle is healthy and has a long life expectancy.

Oddly enough, Thelma and Louise is not the only two-headed animal raised at the zoo. Back in 1978, Janus, two-headed Texas rat snake lived at the zoo until 1995.
