A Minnesota mushroom hunter on the prowl for some fungi stumbled across an unbelievable find: two deer fawns sharing one body. The conjoined twin fawns, which were stillborn, are believed to be the first ones found to have reached full-term and then be delivered by their mother. The only other examples of conjoined twin fawns have been found still in utero, said Gino D’Angelo, the University of Georgia researcher who studied the deer.
Drs. James Beasley and Michael Yabsley have both been recognized during the University of Georgia's Honors Week for their outstanding contributions to research.
