Bizarre turtle with two heads and six legs discovered in China (Video)

A bizarre video shows a baby turtle with two heads and six legs found in north China's Shanxi Province.

 

Footage shows the baby red-eared slider with two heads and six legs as it moves around normally. 

 

The mutated creature was found in a fish and flower shop in China’s Shanxi Province when the owner spotted it after returning from the market with a box of Brazilian turtles. People have been glued to this three-month-old turtle which moves like any other turtle.

 

 

Researchers from the Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Medicine and Life Sciences called the condition abnormalities resulting from genetic mutation, something also seen among human beings.

 

People have been flocking to the shop for catching a glimpse of the turtle which has captured everyone’s imagination.

 

Some suggested water pollution triggered a mutation to this turtle.

 

A red-eared slider turtle can usually live for 50-70 years.

 

It is unknown how long the mutant turtle will live for.
