TWO-HEADED mutant turtle monster discovered
Mr. Wang bought a box of red-eared slider turtles from a market stall when he later found that one of them had six flippers and two heads.

Footage of the mutant reptile – available above – shows one of the heads bobbing up and down and gazing over its surroundings.

Another angle shows its second head doing the same before the turtle attempts to crawl.

« All the legs are moving and all the eyes are blinking, » said Mr. Wang of his new pet.

« It eats normally and I believe this baby turtle is about two to three months old. »

Wang found the creature in Taiyuan in the Shanxi province of China on March 29.

Researchers from Shanxi Medicine and Life Science Academy claim the turtle’s condition is the result of a genetic mutation that may have been triggered by water pollution.

Despite the creepy appearance of the mutant turtle, viewers have fallen in love with it.
