Two headed dragon discovered

Ananova
Scientists in China say they have uncovered the 145 million year old fossil of a two headed dragon. The creature was not a fire-breathing monster but a deformed baby lizard, reports the Daily Mail.

Researchers say it had two distinct heads and necks and is believed to be the earliest example of a creature developing in such a way.

Scientists think it belonged to an ancient family of now-extinct reptiles that grew up to three feet long.

However the fossil is less than three inches long because it probably died shortly before or just after it was born.

The fossil comes from the choristodera family of reptiles which evolved crocodile-like characteristics.
