Two-Headed Turtle Found In Backyard (VIDEO)

A two-headed turtle was recently discovered in a backyard in Manisa, Turkey, as seen in this video from 'The Today Show.' It has four legs and two heads in one shell. The turtle was quickly moved to a nature reserve in Izmir, Turkey.

According to Turkey's state news agency, it is a month-old spur-thighed tortoise. These turtles are given the name for having well-defined spurs on their back legs. They typically live for up to 75 years, but there have been reported cases of the animals living for up to 150 years.
