Conjoined Nile Tilapia Twins

When life deals you a hand that includes a conjoined twin, there's nothing left to do but make the most of it. And that's just what No. 8 in our countdown has done. The Nile tilapia is a freshwater fish native to Africa but sold for food in nearly all parts of the world. However, this particular fish - or pair of fish - is unlikely to make it to market anytime soon. These conjoined twins live in a Bangkok aquarium, where they have worked out a mutually beneficial living arrangement. The larger fish remains upright and protects its little sibling, which spends its time searching the floor of the tank for food. Good teamwork, twins!
