This one is pretty rare!
Wildlife volunteers were left amazed after they found a 2 headed turtle on a beach in South Carolina, USA.
According to reports, volunteers were inspecting nests at a South Caronia Beach when they stumbled upon an extremely rare 2-headed baby sea turtle.
According to South Carolina State Parks, the 2-headed loggerhead hatchling is the result of a genetic mutation.
Such instances are pretty rare.
Other 2 headed turtle hatchlings appeared in both 2017 and 2019, with pictures being taken in Atlantic breeding grounds on Hilton Island in South Carolina, USA.
A university in Florida also found a similar turtle.
South Carolina State Parks released a statement about the incident, saying:
This two-headed hatchling is the result of a genetic mutation. Other two-headed hatchlings have been found in South Carolina in past years, but this is a first for the patrol team at Edisto Beach State Park.
The South Carolina State Parks also said in the post that humans should not disturb the nests of turtles.
A simple mistake could place the baby turtles’ survival at risk.
When a turtle nest is disturb, the hatchlings have a 25 percent or less chance of surviving.
