Bearded Dragons have fast become one of the most popular pet lizards in the reptile hobby. They are large lizards, personable, and have personality. But what would you think of keeping a two-headed Beardie? With six legs, two bodies and a single tail?
Facebook user Goodshop GS, a reptile seller in China, received a two-headed Bearded Dragon last year, and a year into its life, it is doing extremely well. Goodshop GS posted a video onto Facebook showing the conjoined twins chowing down on some roaches, at one point grabbing two roaches at the same time. The video has been viewed more than 3 million times.
The twins have found a home at the Venice Beach Freakshow in Los Angeles, California, which owner Todd Ray says is the world’s largest collection of two-headed animals. Ray told The Huffington Post he paid a bit more than $5,000 for the lizards and hasn’t yet named the duo nor does he know the sex.
“I think they might be female, but I’m still trying to figure it out,” he told HuffPo.
After he made the deal, the lizards were in the United States within 24 hours. The wait, however, wasn’t over.
“They were here within 24 hours, but the waiting period is always scary, especially with an animal this rare,” he told The Huffington Post.
