Two Headed Bristlenose

I just had some bristlenose babies a couple of weeks ago and noticed one of them has a bigger head than the rest. Upon closer look I noticed it has 3 eyes! It looks like the head partially split half way when they formed. They share one eye in the middle, so technically it's 1 1/2 head. I tried to take some photo but it is still really small so I'm having trouble focusing it.
I couldn't find anything on the web. How rare are they?

Interesting. Is Manteca anywhere close to Springfield?

Hi Guys,

I have sad news. Unfortunately it didn't make it. I think it has trouble eating because of the shared mouth so it has trouble rasping on food. Hopefully, I'll get a fully separated heads next time.

YSR50, I don't know where Springfield is but Manteca is in Central California.
