Amazing twins - One Body Two Head

They are absolutely amazing twins. They share numerous bodily organs as a result of an extremely rare case.
Abigail “Abby” Loraine Hensel and Brittany “Britty” Lee Hensel (born 7 March 1990, Carver County, Minnesota, United States), are dicephalic conjoined twins. Brittany is the left twin, and Abigail is the right twin. They have two spines which join at the pelvis. They have two stomachs, three lungs, and two arms. (A third, underdeveloped and useless arm between their heads was amputated in infancy.)

Most of Abigail's and Brittany's shared organs lie below the waist line.
• 2 heads
• 2 arms—originally 3, but the short malformed central arm between the heads was removed
• 2 spinal cords and backbones—surgery corrected scoliosis
• 3½ lungs—surgery expanded their chest cavity while correcting scoliosis
• 2 breasts
• 2 hearts in a shared circulatory system—medicine taken by either affects both
• 1 liver
• 2 stomachs
• 3 kidneys
• 2 gallbladders
• 1 bladder
• 1 ribcage
• 1 large intestine
• 1 reproductive system
• 1 pelvis with 2 legs
