They look to be no older than a year old. "
You can see that many of the bones did not have a chance to properly develop and several have yet to fuse properly as you would see after a certain age. But really what you have is an already abnormal body where almost anything is possible. The fact that the body did not properly develop from the start means that a lot of features could be altered from what you would expect to see. Pretty interesting to look at.

no teeth in either of the skulls
Which is what disturbs me, these twins lived for several years like that before death.
anyways i thought the conjoindamese twins skeleton was pretty cool looking
I didn`t see an ad, but maybe that`s just because of my script blocker. I just saw "Click Back or Next to continue". I figure it`s just there to give the really squeamish IAB users a second chance to ask themselves, "Do I really want to see this?"
If you looked up "Siamese twins" in a dictionary or ecyclopedia, you would probably get directed to "conjoined twins", or maybe even vice versa, indicating that they mean pretty much the same thing. Whether or not one term is preferred or makes more "logical" sense really does not matter.
The "sideshow" aspect just plays into whether or not the term is offensive, not whether or not the term itself is correct.
Whether or not one term is more offensive than the other is another issue intirely
i think so, she has 2 separate spinal cords like the skeleton, so 2 brains, and 2 different personalities in one body, so i guess she would`ve counted as two people
"The term comes from Chang and Eng Bunker who were the first two globally famous and studied conjoined twins."
Actually they were first "discovered" and given work in a freak show where they were billed as the Siamese Twins. Billing them as such gave them an exotic edge for westerners who imagine the eastern world to be full of anomalies like Chang and Eng, giving them a superiority complex.
Why not just be accurate?
i thought it was a egg that failed to split apart into 2 identical twins) because if it was two separate eggs they would not look identical because of the differences in the genes from individual sperm and eggs.
Wow, why would it be fake? google conjoined twins.. Or better yet, visit a anatomical museum.. B-|
like how you can do something with your left hand and something else with your right hand at the same time(please refrain iab)you could learn something with your left brain and learn something else with your right brain, but use the information in either at will and share the knowledge between brains to be some sort of super human creature. i think if we meet aliens like that we will become their slaves.
Well that is not surprising since most siamese twins don`t live very long.
