Scots TV vet's shock over unique two-headed lizard found down under

A TV vet has revealed his amazement after being called in to care for the world’s only two-headed shingleback lizard. He followed his passion for exotic animals by becoming a vet in Australia – but admitted he’d never seen anything like the two-headed lizard. Thought to be about three years old, the lizard was rescued by an animal sanctuary near Bendigo, in the south-east. Chris said: “I think I’ve treated almost every kind of reptile in Australia but this is the only two-headed shingleback on the planet, as far as I know. “People would come to me when their kids had grown tired of their pet snake so I picked up waifs and strays. He said: “I’ve had a lot of feedback from friends and family, saying they’re enjoying the series, but it’s not out in Australia yet so nobody here has any idea about it.
