Says the article:

A two headed bobtail lizard, a type of skink, at its new reptile park home at Henley Brook in Perth, Australia. The two-headed reptile was rescued by the Park and appears to be doing well, despite a short life expectancy. It eats from both heads but the larger head has also tried to attack the smaller one, and its movement is difficult as both heads control its back legs. It also has a healthy sibling without any mutation. Bobtails give birth to live offspring, rather than laying eggs.
