Franken Flatworms Grow Heads and Brains of Other Species

Call them chameleons, chimera, the multi – taskers of the animal kingdom.
They show some unusual behaviour ( s ) & maybe these little critters would share some secrets with us about changing & alteration ( Says the man who resembles Jason Alexander / George Costanza more than he does George Clooney. 🙂 ) even though researchers altered THEM 1st.
This world will never really stop ceasing to amaze me – At least in terms of nature & science.
