Mystery surrounds two-headed prawn found in Qld

Staff at a Queensland aquarium have been left baffled after discovering a two-headed prawn.

The bizarre creature was found by employees at Townsville’s Reef HQ Great Barrier Reef Aquarium on Wednesday with the company taking to Facebook to ask others if they had ever seen anything like it.

“What on Earth?… Check out this interesting fellow that shocked the Aquarist team a moment ago,” the post with a photo of the two-headed prawn reads.


“They just found this peculiar invertebrate in the frozen Prawns packet while getting ready to feed our fish their lunch.”

“We’ve fed out thousands of Prawns to the fish over the years but never seen a two headed one before. Have you?”

The image has since received hundreds of comments.
