Thelma and Louise, a two-headed Texas cooter turtle born last month at the San Antonio Zoo has become so popular that she has her own Facebook page.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) – A two-headed turtle born June 18 at the San Antonio Zoo has become so popular that she has her own Facebook page, www.facebook.com/thelmaandlouise.turtle.

Zoo officials say the Texas cooter, named Thelma and Louise for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie, has been doing well. The turtle eats and swims, and the two heads – named Louise Left and Thelma Right – get along, soo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike said.

Sunday, the Facebook page showed photos of the quirky reptile and imaginary conversations between the two heads.
