Two-headed animals going on show

Two heads are better than one if a weird and wonderful exhibition in the US is anything to go by.

A selection of living two-headed animals is being displayed at the City Museum in St Louis, with snakes and turtles among the creatures on show.

The star attraction could be an albino rat snake called We. The show will run from next week until 5 September.

Museum officials hope the exhibition could create a world record - for the most two-headed creatures in one place.

One of the members of museum staff said: "We have 11 two-headed animals. That's 22 heads. That's the largest number of two-headed animals ever in one place."
