Big Al's Aquarium Supercenter in Pennsylvania has a new animal on display. It's a two month old turtle which has two heads on the opposite ends of the shell, which is a rare variation of the conjoined turtle twins. The turtle has six legs but only one tail. Because of the anatomical peculiarities, the turtle would likely not survive in the wild and become easy prey to the predators. In fact, the turtle does not know whether it is coming or going because each head thinks independently and tries to move its body in different directions.
Photoshop two headed animals (except humans) which have heads on the opposite sides of its body. We will also allow merging of any two animal species (except humans) - e.g. tiger head on one end and a rhino head on the other end of the body.

In other news: The Indian town of Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh, 150 miles southeast of New Delhi, is famous for its ancient temple, dedicated to Lord Krishna. It is also famous for being a city, where more than a thousand rhesus monkeys are found amongst the houses. As it is known, they are also worshiped by Indians.
However, recently people are turning to experts about the protection of the environment with a plea to spare a part of it from these animals. Monkeys have lives here since time immemorial, but in recent years, their numbers shot up sharply. The fact is that the number of pilgrims in Vrindavan has gone up, and so the gratifications. Indeed, the local beliefs say "the one, who feeds the monkey, becomes rich very soon". Greenery is very little in the outskirts and therefore, these animals are now almost totally dependent on humans. Monkeys, in search of food, have learned to steal bags and get into the houses. Often, they snatch the pilgrim's glasses and return them only in exchange for a tasty morsel. There are cases, when a hungry rhesus bites the people.
Many residents "decorated" their windows with grills. The city, is where the man lives in a "cage" but the monkey is free ... A recent poll revealed that 60% of the population wishes some of the monkeys should be evicted, but none of them expressed the wish, that they should all be moved.
The World Wildlife Fund has come to know about the opinion of the Vrindavan residents. Under the leadership of the Indian environmentalist Iqbal Malik, an operation was initiated to resettle 600 monkeys in six different areas, which are situated at least 160 km away from Vrindavan.
Representatives of the tribes inhabiting the states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and experienced in hunting with net traps, were tasked to participate in the operations. A bunch of bananas is attached as bait. It is important, that the whole "family" of monkeys (15-20 animals) falls into the trap, as the remaining monkeys, in no time, form a new large group. Failure to follow this rule has led to unsuccessful attempts to get rid of monkeys in New Delhi previously.
If all goes well in Vrindavan, this method will be followed in other parts of India, suffering from the "ape siege". In particular, the park and building of the All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi will be the next target. Monkeys assemble there in the corridors and break into the medical wards. Relatives of patients believe that, by feeding the monkeys, it will definitely help in the recovery of family members.
