The rare condition of being born with two heads, known as Polycephaly, occasionally occurs in the animal kingdom.

There has only ever been one recorded case of a human living with the condition.

Conjoined Twins Abby and Brittany Hensel were born with two heads on one body, and are now both healthy 24-year-olds.
