A two-headed dolphin has been discovered on a Turkish beach. Teacher Tugrul Metin was walking along the beach at Izmir when he spotted the dead mammal. At three-and-a-half feet in length, the year old calf has two heads but a shared tail. Metin notified the authorities of his discovery and the mammal's body was taken to a nearby science laboratory for further investigation. Marine biologist Mehmet Gokoglu, from Ak Deniz University, said he “welcomed” the chance to study such a unique animal

Child's skull with baby teeth and adult teeth, Hunterian Museum, London It's amazing how 'fluid' dental bone must be.

Sad that its a real kids skull, very cool to see the anatomy in the actual bone instead of just in xrays
