However, I don’t think we have ever seen anything as unbelievable as this two-headed bull shark!
Catch of a lifetime
A fisherman from the Florida Keys caught a bull shark. When he opened her up, he found a two-headed fetus!
He donated the two-headed shark to scientists who are now studying the creature.
The scientific term for the shark’s mutation is called “axial bifurcation,” which basically means the shark started as a twin and never finished separating.
These types of mutations are incredibly rare, but even more rare are these animals chances of survival.
The two-headed bull shark did not survive after the fisherman caught it, but scientists said its mutation put it at such a giant risk with predators, it’s chance of survival in the wild was very slim to begin with.
