A rather rare two-headed sea turtle was recently discovered on a beach in South Carolina. The remarkable creature was found by a special 'sea turtle patrol' team of workers and volunteers from the state's parks department. Having heard of activity emanating from a nest on Edisto Beach, the group visited the location to investigate the matter as this is usually a sign of newly hatched turtles. Detailing the process in a Facebook post, the parks department explained that "we dig down to determine the success of the nest by counting the hatched eggs, unhatched eggs and on occasions also find live hatchlings." In this instance, the otherwise routine inventory wound up leading to a quite wondrous discovery.
