Two-Headed Shark

As if sharks aren't scary enough, here comes the two-headed version. A fisherman found the two-headed bull shark - in this case, a single shark with two heads, rather than a conjoined twin - in the uterus of an adult shark. The shark was brought to the marine science department of Florida Keys Community College and was sent to Michigan State University for further study:

Wagner and his team were able to detail the discovery with magnetic resonance imaging. Without damaging the unique specimen, the MRIs revealed two distinct heads, hearts and stomachs with the remainder of the body joining together in back half of the animal to form a single tail.

What a coincidence, just days ago I watched "Two Headed Shark Attack" a movie so wonderfully horrible that you end up rooting for the shark and today a two headed shark is found.

Be warned - I also watched Stonehenge Apocalypse recently. Best avoid the place for a couple of days.

So- could it have lived?
Alright- so I got un-lazy and followed the link and am now tremendously relieved to know that "The two-headed shark died shortly thereafter and had little, if any, chance to survive in the wild, Wagner added."
So I'll take that off my list of potential nightmare live encounters.
