Rather than having a parasitic twin, Myrtle’s extra legs resulted from an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as dipygus, which gave her two complete bodies from the waist down. She had two small pelves side-by-side, and each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She could move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking.

"Another good pair of fakes were Tom and Hattie.  They were called "The Wild Children."  But they were not wild.  The only time I ever knew them to be wild was when they couldn't go out on the street and play with the other children.  They were born up in the peninsula district of Michigan and were just ordinary children with dwarfed bodies and twisted brains."  - 1911
