First-ever two-headed shark discovered

Shark

Experts at Michigan State University were left shocked after confirming that a shark given to them was a single shark with two heads, rather than conjoined twins.

This amazing discovery was first brought to the marine science department at Florida Keys Community College, before being taken to the Michigan University for further analysis.

Professor Wagner and his fellow boffins used MRI scans to reveal the shark not only had two distinct heads, but also had two hearts and twos stomachs, with the remainder of the body joining together by a single tail.

The Daily Telegraph reports the case was brought to the public's attention after being publicised in the Journal of Fish Biology.
