In the case of omphalopagus, which makes up 33 percent of all conjoined twins, they may share a liver, gastrointestinal tract, and reproductive organs, but rarely share a heart.

The rarest type of conjoined twins is connected at the head.

If one twin’s leg is touched, the other would feel it.

When they write, their mind is prompted to anticipate the next word.

Next, they examine the scans to weigh the possibility of separating the twins through surgery. Since the surgery was first performed in 1950, the success rate continues to promise only one twin survives separation roughly 75 percent of the time.

Living life as a conjoined twin completely eliminates the possibility of true privacy.

Roughly 40 percent of all conjoined twins are thoracopagus.

During the first few weeks of gestation, the egg develops into an embryo that begins to split into identical twins, but the partially separated egg stops splitting and begins growing into a conjoined fetus.

One in every 200,000 live births results in a set of conjoined twins, and their chances of survival are between just 5 and 25 percent.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, 40 to 60 percent of conjoined twins are stillbirths, and another 35 percent only survive a day after they’re born.

When one sees an image through her eyes, the other receives the image milliseconds later. Juliette Hukin, from BC Children’s Hospital, described their brain structure as “mind-blowing.”Yet, tracing and deciphering what their neural pathways will do is still largely unknown, especially because craniopagus twins are so rare with little literature published on their brain structures and abilities.

In the case of 25-year old Abigail “Abby” Hensel and Brittany Hensel, each twin fully controls her half of the body — one leg and one arm on either side.
