Scientists will examine a two-headed dolphin that washed up on a beach in western Turkey, according to media reports.

The remains of the conjoined dolphin calf were discovered on a beach in Dikili, near the Aegean city of Izmir, last week by a holidaying sports 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.

Marine biologists at Akdeniz University will study the dolphin.
