Two Headed Bobtail Lizard

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A two-headed bobtail lizard, a type of skink, at its new reptile park home at Henley Brook in Perth, Australia. The two-headed lizard rescued by the Park and appears to be doing well, despite a short life expectancy. It eats from both heads but the larger head has also tried to attack the smaller one, and its movements are difficult as both heads control its back legs. It also has a healthy sibling without any mutation. Bobtails give birth to live offspring, rather than laying eggs.
