Aliens Underwater? Fishermen Catches A Bizarre Two-Headed Sea Creature

For a fisherman to catch all sorts of things from the ocean, from all sorts of fishes, garbage, sometimes even sharks, is just but normal. However, a group of Dutch fishermen has recently been left puzzled as they have caught their most unexpected catch, perhaps an entity never before seen by man. With the use of their trawl net, it turns out that what they've caught in the North Sea, several nautical miles off the Hook of Holland was a bizarre looking two-headed harbor porpoise.

Following the incident, a photo of the bizarre catch began to circulate through the Netherlands, until it has already reached the attention of Erwin Kompanje, the curator of mammals at the Natural History Museum in Rotterdam. As Kompanje was said to have been moved by what the fishermen caught, he revealed that his first thoughts were to initially find and see it for himself and how soon could he get it into a lab. Despite being regarded as a two-headed sea monster by some, Kompanje says that the case of the two-headed harbor porpoise is one of the nine cases known to mankind as of writing.

Furthermore, experts say that on average, porpoises produce one offspring every one to two years, and even cases of twins are extremely rare. That said, scientists add that symmetrical conjoined twins, such as the case of the two-headed harbor porpoise happen when two separate embryos fuse together or a zygote only partially splits. Kompanje has also highly emphasized that a full understanding of what causes conjoined twins remains to puzzle him as well as other experts.

Meanwhile, as Kompanje has planned an MRI for the porpoises, and preserve it in the museum, he eventually figured out that it was illegal to collect it. Hence, after allegedly taking four images, he threw it back into the sea knowing the fact that it might not be able to be seen again.
