Two-headed shark

AKA my nightmare

Well folks, that is it. My nightmare. Two headed sharks are now roaming the ocean. In 2011 a couple of fisherman made this surprising discovery after catching a female bull shark.

An article published this month in the Journal of Fish Biology confirms that the fetus is the first case of dicephalia—”two-headedness”—in a bull shark. Dicephalia occurs when twins fail to fully separate during development in the uterus, a condition also known as axial bifurcation. The rare deformity has been observed in a wide variety of animals as well as humans, though the abnormality is often fatal.

Is it ironic this comes from the Laughing Squid?
