A slip of nature has resulted in the birth of a two-headed tortoise at a wildlife park in China.
The tiny reptile has really come out of his shell, popping out not one but two fully functional heads.
Born at Xiaoyaojin wildlife park in Hefeia, southern China, it is the result of a slip of nature when a pair of twins started to separate and then abruptly stopped.
‘Both heads operate completely independently of each other and they eat separately and seem very happy with the way they are,’ said one keeper.
‘The only problem comes when one head wants to go one way and the other wants to go somewhere else,’ they explained.
