SAN ANTONIO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A two-headed turtle born last month at the San Antonio Zoo is so popular that she received more than 1,000 Facebook page “likes” Sunday.

Named Thelma and Louise after the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie, zoo officials said the turtle hasn’t shown any signs of health problems.

Spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike said she eats and swims, and added that the two heads — named Louise Left and Thelma Right — get along.

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

The Thelma and Louise hatched June 18. It’s on display at the zoo’s Friedrich Aquarium.
