HUDSON, Maine (AP) â€” A woman in Maine has come across a two-headed baby snapping turtle that was trying to cross the road.
Kathleen Talbot of Hudson tells WLBZ-TV she found the tiny creature this week while she was watching turtle hatchlings to make sure they arrived safely at the other side of the street.
She noticed one of the turtles had been left behind. It was so dirty she thought at first that it had two feet in front.
It wasn't until she got home and washed off the turtle that she realized it had two heads. The turtle fits easily into the palm of her hand.
