You Will Never Guess What’s Wrong With This Dolphin (Besides Being Dead)

Fun or freaky?

A man walking along a Turkish beach was shocked to discover the carcass of a dolphin with two heads.

Tugrul Metin, a gym teacher, was in disbelief after finding the animal. After recovering from the shock, he called the cops who took the two headed beast to a lab for testing.

"I couldn't take it in at first," Metin said. "I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me - I've never even heard about a dolphin like this let alone seen one with my own eyes - I was completely shocked."

Two is usually better than one, but that's not the case with extra heads. Animals born with two heads (a condition known as polycephaly) have a lower rate of survival.

While polycephaly is rare, there have been many cases of two headed in animals, fish, and even humans. See for yourself:
