Conjoined Fawn 4

A two-headed Infant deer Located in the United States is your first conjoined twin Fawn known to have attained full term and be delivered with their own mom, scientists say.

The discovery was made by a mushroom hunter in May 2016 near the town of Freeburg, Minnesota.

"The bodies of the fawns were joined ventrally and laterally with two separate necks and heads", wrote Lou Cornicelli in an abstract in the American Midland Naturalist, a journal of zoology. The finding is being called wonderful and extremely rare by Gino D'Angelo of the University of Georgia.

The fawns will be on display at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource's headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The fawn - or, more accurately fawns - are conjoined twins.

"We think it's an unnatural splitting of cells during early embryo development", D'Angelo said. Nestled dead in the underbrush was what looked like a single newborn baby fawn, carrying two heads on one body.

While other examples of conjoined fawn twins have been seen in the womb this is believed to have been the first set brought to full term.

One of the authors of the paper, University of Georgia researcher Gino D'Angelo, told UGA Today there had been only 19 cases of conjoined twins among domestic wildlife from 1671 to 2006, and two cases of white-tailed deer previously reported were found in utero. We can not even gauge the rarity of the.

"Animals that are stillborn, they don't last long on the landscape because of scavengers", said Cornicelli.

"Their anatomy indicates the fawns would never have been viable", D'Angelo said in the release.

The two-headed deer found in Minnesota is an extremely rare specimen not only among its species but also among other species. He adds that the hunter found the remains of the fawns cleaned and in a natural position means that the doe that delivered the fawns tried to care for the fawns before realizing they were stillborn.

Conjoined twins seems to be more common in domesticated animals like sheep and cats, but the exact causes of the phenomenon are not fully understood. "The maternal instinct is quite powerful", D'Angelo explained. "The taxidermists, Robert Utne and Jessica Brooks, did a great job with the mount and treated it very respectfully".
