My first question would be is it real or is it Photoshop?!?

Could be either or, but wouldn't be the first two-headed animal to pop up.

for those who don't like clickies, I copied the article:

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — A two-headed turtle captured by a turtle collector is a rare example of a conjoined-twin birth, its owner said.

The turtle would have likely died in the wild because it swims awkwardly and would be an easy target for predators, according to Jay Jacoby, manager of Big Al's Aquarium Supercenter in East Norriton.

The store bought the tiny turtle from the collector for an undisclosed price and will keep it on display, he said.

The 2-month-old turtle, known as a red-eared slider, fits on a silver dollar.

It has two heads sticking out from opposite ends of its shell, along with a pair of front feet on each side. But there is just one set of back feet and one tail.

The turtle is seemingly healthy, and the species can live 15 to 20 years, Jacoby said. The turtle has not yet been named.

The same exotic-turtle collector sold another Big Al's store a conjoined-twin turtle about 20 years ago, Jacoby said. The man lives in Florida, but he declined to identify him.

He's a mad scientist! He's purposely breeding the 2-headed turtles and selling them to the store at a hefty price every 20 years or so; the turtle's anticipated lifespan!

Wish I'd have thought of it.
