The discovery of gray whale calves in a Mexican lagoon surprised locals when it was found they were conjoined.

The pair, joined at the body, and found at Laguna Ojo de Liebre, were believed to be the first specimen of a conjoined gray whale ever found.

Scientists were studying the find and later planned to bury it. They would then later dig it up and study the bones, a delegate of Mexico's Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources, José Carlos Cota Osuna told Cabovision.
