ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A marine biologist says that his university does not know the whereabouts of a dead two-headed dolphin photographed on a beach in western Turkey.

Mehmet Gokoglu said Tuesday that, based on photos, the mammal appears to be conjoined dolphins.

He denied media reports that his university in Antalya, southern Turkey, is studying the remains, but added that the university would like to display them if it can locate them.

The dolphin calf was discovered on a beach in Dikili, near the Aegean city of Izmir, last week by a vacationing gym teacher.
