The carcass of a rare two-headed dolphin washed up on a beach in Turkey. It was discovered by a vacationing gym teacher, who was walking along the shore, according to Fox News on Aug. 12.

The carcass of the two-headed dolphin calf was quite the find, it is a rare occurrence, much like conjoined human twins. Turkish scientist have taken custody of the dead creature and they plan to study its remains.

The vacationing gym teacher found the creature with two heads on a beach near the town of Dikili, which is near the Aegean city of Izmir. It was a surprising find to say the least.

According to MSN News today, the marine biologists at Akdeniz University will do research on the dolphin with two heads. While that has been reported in the various media news outlets today, it seems that the university knows nothing about receiving the creature’s remains.

Marine biologist Mehmet Gokoglu from the Akdeniz University denies having the creature, but said that the university would be happy to have it on display. Gokoglu has no idea where the remains of that two-headed dolphin ended up, according to the Independent. It appears that the two-headed dolphin has a new mystery brewing, which would be its location!

Once they get that mystery sorted out by locating the fish then someone is bound to do some type of probe involving such a rare specimen. It would be a shame to let it go to waste when the scientific community could put it to good use with research.

This is not the first two-headed water dwelling creature to pop up in recent years. A two-headed shark was discovered in March of this year by fisherman in the Florida Keys. They discovered a two-headed bull shark, which is reportedly the first of its kind to be found.

This was a bit of an eerie discovery as the fisherman caught a bull shark and opened it up to find two live fetuses and one of them had two heads. This was the first time a bull shark with two-heads was discovered and in it was in the nation’s own backyard of the Florida Keys.
