Turkish scientists will examine a two-headed dolphin that washed up on a beach in western Turkey, say Turkish media reports.

The remains of conjoined dolphin calf were discovered on a beach in Dikili, near the Aegean city of Izmir last week by a vacationing gym teacher, the private Dogan news agency said.

It quoted Akdeniz University marine biologist Mehmet Gokoglu as saying the dolphin was a rare occurrence, similar to conjoined twins.
