2-Headed, 6-Legged Baby Lizard Found In Thailand

Two-headed, six-legged baby house gecko

This week, a two-headed, six-legged baby gecko was found in Phuket, Thailand. Apparently, three men living in an apartment discovered the reptile so soon after its birth that it still had egg shell on one of its heads. The gecko, according to the men, was about the size of a baby’s finger.

Dr. Sansareeya Wangkulangkul, a biology professor at Prince of Songkhla University, said this particular find is quite special.

“This is very unusual,” she said. “House geckos usually live about one year, but I’m not sure about this one because it’s deformed. The owners could try feeding it with black ants, which will not sting the gecko, or with mealworms.”

However unique this baby gecko might be, it certainly isn’t the first two-headed reptile we’ve run into.
