Bizarre Two Headed Animals

Oddities and the bizarre have always interested me. As a young child I always wanted to go visit the side show when the circus came to town. Later we moved to St Augustine Florida and when I discovered Ripleys Believe It Or Not I thought it was the most fascinating place on earth. I would beg for odd jobs to come up with the then $3.00 admission fee that it cost to get into Ripleys at that time.

And the odd and the bizarre have always interested me. Below you will find photos and stories of two headed animals. Some of these are strange and some are really bizarre and strange. Some of this hub page on two headed animals may be disturbing to some people.

Very interesting! I discovered this Hub after posting my own photos of a two-headed Red Ear Slider Turtle that I saw in Kuala Lumpur. I had no idea that this is so common. Thanks for a great Hub - voted up! Geoff

It was interesting. They ARE freaky looking, but they can't help that and I hope all the animals in the pics get treated humanely. It DOES give me the willies to think of a two-headed python or a two-headed crocodile, though. As if one head wasn't enough!

Thanks for the comments. Yes it is weird. I have had a two headed garter snake which escaped back into the wild and a two headed turtle that I still have.

An interesting hub. I have seen few pickled ones and one loving two headed goat. I did deliver a two headed sheep once (in pieces)...that had six legs incidentally. I do think though it would be much more humane to euthanase all such creatures at birth. Thank you.
