World Amazing Stuff: Double headed turtle

Double headed turtle

A woman in Maine came across a two-headed baby snapping turtle that was trying to cross the road. Kathleen Talbot of Hudson told WLBZ-TV she discovered the turtle as she monitored other turtle hatchlings trekking across.

"I thought he had two feet in the front,' she told the affiliate station.  'I thought he was deformed. I didn't realize it was two heads until I got him home and washed him. Then he came to life and was just starving.'

The young turtle was named Frank and Stein, the affiliate station said.

Talbot told Bangor Daily News 'I bought him reptile pellets, which he’s not sure if he likes yet, but he does like worms and flies and hamburger.'

'My intentions aren’t to keep him, but to at least give him a good start,' she told the newspaper. 'Then maybe the New England Aquarium or someplace like that would want him.'
