ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish media reports say Turkish scientists will examine a two-headed dolphin that washed up on a beach in western Turkey.
The private Dogan news agency said the remains of conjoined dolphin calf were discovered on a beach in Dikili, near the Aegean city of Izmir last week by a vacationing gym teacher.
It quoted Akdeniz University marine biologist Mehmet Gokoglu as saying the dolphin was a rare occurrence, similar to conjoined twins.

He denied media reports that his university in Antalya, southern Turkey, is studying the remains, but added that the university would like to display them if it can locate them.
