Tortoise Twins Were Joined At Birth, You’ll Never Believe How They Separated Them.

Human babies aren't the only ones born with complications: Even in the tortoise world, the possibility of conjoined twins isn't as rare as you'd think. Here's what one tortoise expert had to say about it on his YouTube page:

Keepers are often presented with issues when incubating and hatching tortoise eggs. One of these issues is the possibility of twins. Twins can be conjoined or perish in the egg but sometimes they are born and are simply joined at the yolk sac. This video shows how to safely separate them when this occurs.

See the amazing video of the separation below. You won't believe what everyday item they use to perform the procedure.
