A turtle with two heads is making its debut today (Thursday) after hatching at a zoo in Texas, USA. SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO.

The rare female Texas cooter, named Thelma and Louise by her keepers at San Antonio Zoo, was born last week. She is one of several born this month at the zoo, but is the only one with two heads.

Visitors will be able to see the turtle at the zoo's Friedrich Aquarium.

Speaking to news service newsday.com, zoo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike said that the two-headed turtle appeared healthy and is able to swim and walk.

She added that experts at the zoo didn't foresee any health issues for the unusual reptile.
