Firstly, sorry for the rather grim image you’re looking at, it’s the only one of the creature and secondly, before you all say “this isn’t technology news!”, I know, but something as strange as this has to be brought to peoples attention.
Now I’m sure we’ve all heard about conjoined twins being born in the news, they are so rare that if they live beyond 5 seconds then everyone has to know about it. Now it seems that the same has happened with a dolphin, or is that dolphins? A conjoined Dolphin was found dead on the shores of Turkey by a tourist visiting the area, scientists aren’t exactly sure how old the Dolphin was before it died but an estimate of 12 months has been given, it was around 3.2 ft long and according to the man who found the corpse, one of its eyes had not properly formed, poor thing.
The deceased dolphin will be studied by a marine biologist names Mehmet Gokoglu from Akdeniz University. The scientist says that a conjoined dolphin is very rare.
