A rare, two-headed turtle has hatched at the San Antonio Zoo.

The female reptile arrived June 18 and will be on display the zoo's Friedrich Aquarium, reports The Associated Press.

Names Thelma and Louise, the turtle appears healthy and is able to swim and walk, according to a zoo spokeswoman.

The San Antonio Zoo is no stranger to two-headed reptiles. The facility was home to a two-headed Texas rat snake named Janus from 1978 until the creature's death to 1995.
