Hi Richard....interesting question!
I do not recall, althought I'm certain I heard info in the past:
Are these unfortunate creatures twins-gone-wrong ?
I believe that is what I had heard before!
If it included other parts of the anatomy being duplicated as well, would it
not be then considered conjoined twins ?
