Conjoined twins share two hearts and two stomachs in one body

These conjoined twins( Abigail and Brittany Hensel ) share a body and are the rarest form of conjoined twins,In fact, they were never expected to survive beyond a few days.

Abigail and Brittany Hensel have not only survived, they have gone on to live as normal lives as is possible and went from darling children, to plucky teenagers and, now, beautiful young women.

They have two spines (which join at the pelvis), two hearts, two oesophagi, two stomachs, three kidneys, two gall bladders, four lungs (two of which are joined),one liver, one ribcage, a shared circulatory system and partially shared nervous systems.

From the waist down, all organs, including the intestine, bladder and reproductive organs, are shared.

The 22-year-olds, who share one body fused at the torso, will soon be starring in their own reality TV show.
