Snakes with two he and cats with two faces may seem like morbid entertainment, but they have a lot to teach us about development and evolution. All images were taken from Freaks of Nature.

Two headed snake This British grass snake exhibits dicephalusa condition related to coned twinning. It is caused during development by high incubation temperatures.

Human and animal freaks of nature

Dicephalus is common in reptiles and particularly in British grass snakes, who lay their eggs inside compost heaps where decomposing matter produces heat. Because the condition occurs in response to environmental influences rather than genetic mutations, this snake is not a "mutant", but merely a "freak".

Zoologist Harris Hawthorne Wilder developed this conceptual framework, which he called "Cosmobia"to understand certain developmental abnormalities. His scheme runs the spectrum from cyclopia having only a single eye, in the middle of the forehead to diprosopia having duplicated facial featuressuggesting that what we consider "normal" is nothing more than the middle ground in the vast range of nature's creations. Wilder insisted that conditions like cyclopia and diprosopia should not be considered deformations, but rather "symmetrical anomalies on either side of a normal being".

The figures beyond diprosopia, labeled XII through XIV, illustrate a condition called dicephalus, which turned out not to be an extension of diprosopia, but rather a variant of coned twinning Reprinted with permission from Wiley-Liss, Inc. This image, from a collection at Philadelphia's Mutter Museum, shows a young girl with amelia, a condition marked by undeveloped limbs. As the fetal brain and the functional organization of the nervous system interacts with its sensory and motor systems during development, it responds with remarkable adaptability to any obstacles it encounters - such as missing limbs Photograph courtesy of the Mutter Museum, College of Physicians and Philadelphia.

In the early s, University of Maine biologist Franklin Dove surgically transplanted the two horn buds of a one-day-old male calf from their usual position to a single, central location on the calf's skull.

He suspected that the two horns would fuse together into one. That is precisely what happened - Dove created a real live unicorn.

Blumberg writes, "The success of Dove's experiment depended upon the ability of an isolated horn bud, like the regenerating limb of a newt, to grow independently of other tissues in the calf's body. Photograph reprinted with permission from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The kitten in this photograph has diprosopia, a rare congenital malformation that duplicates facial features. While genetic mutations cause some abnormalities in humans, many, including diprosopia, are caused by obstacles faced during development.

By focusing only on genes, Blumberg argues in Freaks of Naturewe miss out on everything developmental anomalies can teach us about biological form and behavior. These anomalies reveal that development is not predestined, but is a step-by-step process of formation that can take alternate paths in response to environmental and genetic influences.
