So, if both heads eat, (as stated in the full artical) would they have seperate stomacs? Or would they only have one, and feel the same hunger pains? I would love to see an ultrasound of the internal organs, and find out if its 2 little turtles in one shell, or one turtle with two heads? How interesting!!!!
