Oh wow! I had no clue that STL had a 2 headed snake. Is it really the only one in the world?

BTW- Odd looking fish. Does anyone know what causes deformaties such as the two mouth fish or the two headed snake?

Ive seen two headed snakes a lot ... my assumption is in both cases an enviromental factor has spurred this type of mutation.

I guess we have forgotten that this occurs in humans too? Siamese twins is the "normal" identification for the human species. Zygotes splitting which would normally produce twins don't split entirely and we have these occurrences. Not so much a mystery IMO.

I know about the Siamese Twins but for some reason I didn't think it could happen in animals. Not sure why I thought that. Just a blonde moment.
