This two-headed, six-legged tortoise = two animals, one shell

This five-year-old conjoined Central Asian tortoise — which was on display yesterday at the National Museum of Natural History in Kiev, Ukraine — has two heads, six legs, two hearts, one intestine, and one big dilemma.

Its heads are on the opposite sides of its shell, so each cannot see the other. The poor reptile therefore frequently attempts to walk in opposite directions, which leads to some confused ambulation. And you thought your roommates were the worst. [LA Times /WO/Hat tip to Terrence]
