In Japan, not wanting to be outdone by China, a two headed turtle was found in Moriyama. The little boy who found him named the amphibian 'Takara' meaning treasure. The cause? Researchers say it was NOT pollution but rather some sort of natural phenomenon. Takara is alive!

We say, or at least some people say, that two heads are better than one. The Japanese say "sannin yoreba monchuu no chie" which roughly translates to three heads being better than one.
