The center’s staff said that the turtle, which is one of the endangered species in the state, feeds well on worms and vegetables.
The two heads work independently, and they come out to breathe air at different times. Inside the turtle’s body, there are two intestinal systems to feed the body.
The Cape Cod Times reported that after hatching, these turtles are sent to various care centers to be monitored before they are released in the spring.
Center staff will continue to monitor the turtle in the coming weeks and hope to conduct a CT scan to learn more about its circulatory system.
