Every animal is related to its own constitution and the consciousness of it.
Animals are lovely. They are the living things that can’t speak the language humans speak, but they do understand the language of love, which is why, most of the people on this planet are so obsessed with keeping pets. Some animals are adorable while some might seem to be very strange to you. Stories of the animals such as two-headed sharks, anal-drumming caterpillars, and a spider with an internal disco ball, definitely make it to the list of weirdest animal stories of all time.

Two headed sharks exist very much and these days, the weird creatures are being photographed and found everywhere. They are almost turning up worldwide. The Spanish researchers came across an embryo of cat shark with two heads and since then, this is seen at many places in the world. Some researchers are speculating that these creatures are seen all of a sudden worldwide, because there might be some kind of mutation in the gene pool.
