(Newser) – What appears to be a two-headed dolphin has washed up on a beach in Dikili, near the Aegean city of Izmir, Turkey. A marine biologist at Akdeniz University hasn't seen the remains in person but says they appear to be that of rare conjoined dolphins, reports the Independent. The marine biologist adds that the university would like to display the creature at its museum, if the remains can be located. A vacationing gym teacher took the original photo, which has gone viral. (In other sea oddities, two strange-looking creatures, here and here, surfaced recently.)
