Rare two-headed deer found in forest

Conjoined Fawn 4

In utero, stated Gino D'Angelo, researcher in the University of Georgia from the U.S. who analyzed the bull.

A white-tailed female deer gave birth to baby twins in May 2016 that happens nearly like every day in the US after giving birth, the mother started to clean her babies but to her surprise, they didn't respond.

The young deer were found stillborn in southeastern Minnesota in May 2016 and it has now been the centre of a major scientific discovery - the first conjoined two-headed deer to have been brought to full term. The famous taxidermy company, the Wild Images in Motion got the pelt to make into the taxidermy mount that will be showcased on the display at the headquarters of Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. "There are a few reported cases of two-headed ungulate fetuses, but nothing delivered to term".

After the tests, researchers saw that the fawns had two separate necks and heads although they shared the same body. "So, the uniqueness made it special".

"We think it's an unnatural splitting of cells during early embryo development", D'Angelo said. The body of the twin fawns was frozen so that the biologist could go through the in-depth study and research on its features.

Uber will no longer silence victims of sexual assault
There is no publicly available data for the number of sexual assaults by Uber drivers or drivers of other rideshare companies. The company's revised policies, in addition to not being applied retroactively, also don't apply to class-action claims.

"Their anatomy indicates the fawns would never have been viable", D'Angelo said in the University of Georgia press report. We can not even gauge the rarity of the. Since the hunter found the remains of the fawns cleaned and in a natural position, it means that the doe that delivered the fawns tried to care for them before realizing they were stillborn. Of these cases, only two were of white-tailed deer, and neither made it through the full pregnancy.

Other anatomical abnormalities include two separate gastrointestinal tracts (but only one connected all the way to the anus), two hearts and extra spleens but only one liver, which was malformed, according to ScienceAlert.com. "The maternal instinct is quite powerful", D'Angelo explained.

D'Angelo said conjoined twins are relatively commonly in domestic animals, however they are extremely rare in other wildlife.

"We all thought it was pretty neat and were glad to be able to show it to the public", co-author Cornicelli told Fox 9.

After the study wrapped up, the twins were preserved by Robert Utne and taxidermist Jessica Brooks to create a realistic display.
