Fishermen from Holland have caught a dolphin with two heads - RIA Novosti, 6/14/2017


Two-headed sea pig
MOSCOW, 14 Jun — RIA Novosti. The Dutch fishermen have incidentally caught a two-headed dolphin in the North Sea and have reported his photos to scientists, the website of the popular scientific magazine New Scientist reports. "The anatomy of cetacea considerably differs from the device of a body of other mammals because they are adapted to life in the sea. Much of what distinguishes us from whales and dolphins remains to unknown. Therefore opening of one more case of a ditsefaliya among cetacea in addition to nine already studied gives us the mass of new knowledge" — Erwin Kompanje from the National historical museum of Rotterdam has declared (Netherlands). © Photo: Paul Gonzalez, Hopkins Marine Stationuchenye have found an animal who has a head and Hank Tanis is absent телаВ the end of May and his companions fished in the North Sea approximately in 30 kilometers from coast of the Netherlands. Having pulled out network from the sea, Dutches have found in it not fish, but a newborn sea pig with two heads (Phocoena phocoena). This delfinenok is similar to Siamese twins well familiar to all — it had two heads, three eyes and one body with a normal set of extremities and bodies. Fishermen were frightened of a find and have thrown out it in the sea, having considered that the similar catch is illegal from the point of view of laws of the EU and Holland. However before it Tanis and his companions have taken several tens of pictures of a "Siamese" dolphin and subsequently have transferred them to scientists. The description of a find and pictures have been published this week in the magazine Deinsea.© Fallon Durant, Allen Discovery Center at Tufts Universityamerikanskiye biologists have grown up the first "a two-headed worm" As Kompanje notes, they were frightened in vain — a delfinenok, judging by photos of his weak tail and a back fin, I have died practically right after an exit from mother's womb. Fishermen shouldn't have thrown out hulk — according to the oceanologist, two-headed sea pigs never met earlier, and studying of a body would help to understand why the animal has died and what mutations have served as the reason of emergence of the second head. Opening interestingly also for the reason that similar violations of development extremely seldom arise among cetacea. As a rule, their females give birth to only one cub, and the mechanism of emergence of the second zygote in their womb somehow merging with the first while remains a riddle for scientists. Kompanje and other researchers hope to reveal her in process of detection of new similar cases.
