Nature, as we have said earlier, is known to throw in a curve ball once in a while. there is no doubt that Mother Nature in all her benevolence does the most amazing things that not only provides us with life but also the means to nurture life and also the means to keep a balance between things. That is why, when we sometimes come across some things that seem like an aberration of nature, it seems shocking. Having said that, we have to know that while Mother Nature is a perfectionist, she has a way of being so tolerant that we tend to start fiddling with her. This is probably the reason that there are some animals in nature that are born with not one but two heads.
Yes, we are talking about animals that have been born with two heads in actuality. This is not a photography or photo shopping trick that makes it look as if one animal has two heads, but a reality that is pretty shocking. Once you look at such a creature, it will no doubt shock you to the very roots of your being, but surprisingly, such sites will also fascinate you. So much so, that in many cases, you will find that you will not be able to take your eyes off the creature in question.
In many primitive tribes, it is believed that the birth of a two headed animal is indicative of too much interference of humans in the ways of nature and the birth of such an animal is just an indication that this should stop.

The fact of the matter is that in many cultures, the sight of such animals that have more than one head is considered either a holy phenomenon or the exact opposite, that of being a portent of something evil that is about to occur. In either case, we also have to think about the two headed animal in question, how bewildered and awkward it will feel when faced with the extra body part.
What is more, having two heads will also make it stand out among all the others of its species which can be sometimes an advantage or in some cases a big setback. We are really not very sure about the way animals think but we are working on ways to research this aspect. That is why it is very difficult to predict what the animal is thinking or feeling. However, when we think of any physical differences in an animal when it is out in the wild, we know one thing for sure; that the animal with this aberration like having two heads will stand out from rest of the group.
This means that the two headed animal in question will find it difficult to negotiate their way about in the wild or forage for food or seek a mate. After all the world of animals out in the wild is not one that is based on principle of pity and compassion but one that is based on survival. However, you will see that most animals having two heads may not be part of the wild and may be found in other environments.
The conclusion that many scientists have come to when it comes to explaining why these two headed animals are born is that they feel that only fetuses that started out as twins result in this. Sometimes one of the twin animals stops development and what remains is the vestigial head that grows on the survivor of the twin. This has been one of the explanations that people of scientific bent of mind have come up with.
