There are numerous records of conjoined twinning in humans and domesticated animals, but many fewer for wild animals because of the early death of conjoined twins. We here describe the incidental discovery and skeletal anatomy of a wild-caught bat fetus with two heads. To our knowledge, this is only the second conjoined bat fetus described, and the first conjoined Artibeus phaeotis. We also revisit the anatomy of the first conjoined bat that was described, a stillborn Eptesicus fuscus.
