Summertime shark stories have always been strange affairs. And what's weird is that some of the strangest tales are the ones that are actually true. Scientists have confirmed that within the beautiful ocean depths, there exist mutated two-headed sharks. Are two-headed sharks real? Absolutely. But unlike the best terrible shark horror films, these mutated creatures are the hunted, not the hunters.

Two-headed sharks are mysteriously appearing in our oceans. Beware, close the beaches and call the coast guard because scientists warn that these sharks are becoming more and more common.Two-headed shark fetuses have been found in Florida, Mexico and in the Indian Ocean. Despite a growing number of sightings worldwide, two-headed sharks are still rare, at least for now. Most don’t survive birth, making it difficult to study the cause of these anomalies. So, what’s causing these freak mutations?

Overfishing has caused a devastating 90% decline in global shark populations. Causing sharks to inbreed, which limits the gene pool and causes birth defects. Other scientists say that two-headed shark populations aren’t getting larger. They simply believe that there are more scientific journals to report on them. Time will ultimately prove that whether this issue becomes widespread. Maybe we should put our heads together and act now before it is too late. “Two heads are better than one” is a great concept when it comes to figuring out a specific problem, but not so much when it’s literally referring to a dangerous animal suffering from polycephaly.

Sharks are not the only two-headed animals that have been documented. There have been cases of pigs and cats being born with two heads. In addition, shark mutations are in no way, shape, or form limited to only dicephalic parapagus (the genetic abnormality known as conjoined twin syndrome). Overfishing, pollution, climate change, and other factors have resulted in all sorts of twisted gene abnormalities in sharks. Have you seen the Shark Cyclops yet? It’s pretty terrifying stuff.

At the end of the day, most scientists and researchers agree that human habits have given way to shark inbreeding, which is turning the ocean into an underwater circus. Every part of the globe has been exposed to these mutated two-headed sharks. So, before you head out for that family vacation at your favorite little nook on the beach, you might want to enlighten yourself on the newest wave in maritime mutants.

Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface which is a lot of deep-water territory to keep an eye on. As the human population continues to grow the odds of finding such creatures increases. Combine that with factors like overfishing causing decreased shark populations and the resulting inbreeding is two-headedness as an unfortunate genetic defect that can happen. Don’t worry about coming across a two-headed finned monstrosity in the wild, since one major factor working against these sharks is the bitter irony of an animal born in the ocean that can’t swim. Yes, two heads fighting over which direction to go makes for an easy target for predators!
