ANKARA, Turkey – Turkish media reports say Turkish scientists will examine a two-headed dolphin that washed up on a beach in western Turkey.
The private Dogan news agency said the remains of conjoined dolphin calf were discovered on a beach in Dikili, near the Aegean city of Izmir last week by a vacationing gym teacher.
It quoted Akdeniz University marine biologist Mehmet Gokoglu as saying the dolphin was a rare occurrence, similar to conjoined twins.
Marine biologists at Akdeniz University will study the dolphin.
