Two-headed turtle in San Antonio


A two-headed turtle born last month at San Antonio zoo has become so popular.

Zoo officials say the animal, named Thelma and Louise, has been doing well.

A spokeswoman said it eats and swims, and added that the two heads, named Louise Left and Thelma Right, seem to get along. She said the zoo did not foresee any health issues for the animal.

The Facebook page on Sunday showed photos of the reptile, which hatched on 18 June and is on display at the zoo’s Richard Friedrich aquarium, with imaginary conversations between the two heads.

The zoo is no stranger to two-headed reptiles. It was home to a double-headed Texas rat snake named Janus from 1978 until its death in 1995.
