Whales are pretty damn scary, and the thought of one of them with two heads, and two mouths, is quite frankly enough to keep me out of the water for the rest of my life.  But while it's a horrifying thought, this story coming out Mexico this week is actually a whole lot more sad than it is frightening.

As we spotted over on the website Mirror, a group of scientists discovered the body of the two-headed whale on Mexico's Laguna Ojo de Liebre, which is actually a set of conjoined twins.  Due to the small size of the corpse, which measures about half the size of a normal newborn gray whale, scientists believe the siamese twins were miscarried, and they have no way of knowing if their mother survived the birth.

This is an incredibly rare find, as conjoined gray whales have never before been documented.  Some have suggested that Fukushima radiation is to blame for the anomaly, though these suggestions are unsubstantiated.

Don't get any ideas, Syfy...
