Two-headed cats are all the rage. Do we have room in our hearts for this two-headed cooter, a turtle species native to Texas?

This thing is definitely turtley enough for the Turtle Club.

“Zoo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike said Wednesday that the two-headed turtle appears healthy and is able to swim and walk,” CBS News reported. “She says experts at the zoo don’t foresee any health issues for Thelma and Louise, named for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning road movie of the same name. The San Antonio Zoo is no stranger to two-headed reptiles. The facility was home to a two-headed Texas rat snake named Janus from 1978 until the creature’s death in 1995.”
