    Link: Another Real Conjoined Twins Skeleton - If you recall the last Siamese skeleton, they were fused at the spine. These two are fused at the skull.

    One face and one chest. Judging by the height of the skeletons, they survived at least until they were 2-4 years old. That`s really impressive for a defect that severe.

    The anterior fontanelle is still opening meaning he was probably under the age of two. There doesn`t appear to be any teeth which also indicates less than two years old, most likely less than a year old.

    Yikes. They were probably better off dead. Poor things. Or thing? How many separate, cognitive brains did that have? I think it looks like they would have about one half of a brain...

    And yeah these don`t look like guys who were goners right after birth. Lived for a couple years.

    I`m going to take a guess, then, that it was one conscious brain, slightly brain-dead and probably unable to use half of his body parts. I think someone like that would be able to survive a couple years... I don`t see how it would have survived if there were different conscious minds up there.

    They inspire a thought of an art piece...like a political or society commentary. Two different bodies that share one mind.

    I wonder what life would have been like for them if they lived into adulthood.

    This isn`t a fake, I`ve seen it in person at the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, PA. The Mutter Museum is a museum of medical oddities at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Admission is $10 if you have a valid student I.D. I`d recommend any student going into the health field check this place out!
