Twice during 2011, babies with two heads were born in Brazil.

While frisky around people, Bentley immediately goes into a frightened sulk when left alone, cowering from cats, holing up behind a couch, and constantly biting his nails, even at the sound of a cat on television.
Bentley was recently outfitted with special lace-up booties to preserve the nails.
