Texas Zoo’s 2-Headed Turtle Gets Its Own Facebook Page

SAN ANTONIO (July 28, 2013)—A two-headed turtle that was born last month at the San Antonio Zoo is so popular that she has her own Facebook page.

Zoo officials say the Texas cooter named Thelma and Louise, for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning road movie is doing well.

Spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike says the turtle eats, swims and the two heads, named Louise Left and Thelma Right, get along just fine.

The Facebook page Sunday showed photos of the quirky reptile and imaginary conversations between the two heads.

The turtle hatched June 18 and is on display at the zoo's Friedrich Aquarium.
