Abstract

Case reports of conjoined twins (“Siamese twins”) in wild mammals are scarce. Most published reports of conjoined twins in mammals concern cases in man and domestic mammals. This article describes a case of cephalopagus conjoined twins in a leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) collected on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, in the period 1873–76. A review of known cases of conjoined twinning in wild mammals is given.
