Two-Headed Turtle Named Thelma and Louise Born at San Antonio Zoo (VIDEO)

The likelihood of a conjoined animal is about one in 200,000, and the chances of two conjoined sets of animals being born at the same zoo is even less likely. The San Antonio Zoo in Texas hasn’t had a conjoined twin animal since their two-headed snake named Janus died in the mid-1990s.

Much to the zoo’s surprise, a two-headed turtle was hatched recently, Huffington Post reports, which they named Thelma and Louise after the hit ‘90s film. How perfect is that?! The reptiles are Texas scooter turtles, and they have already shown that two heads are better than one, offering totally different personalities, according to a zookeeper. He says one of the heads was looking around while the other was trying to bite him!

Zoo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike says that the two-headed turtle appears healthy and is able to swim and walk. She says experts at the zoo don't foresee any health issues. The turtle will be on display in the zoo’s Friedrich Aquarium.
