How does it make it's "waste?" ;)

But seriously, it there a dominate "end?"

The waste comes out in the middle bottom where a belly bottom would be. But sicne they are from eggs they don't have a bellybutton.

And yes they have a dominant end. In this particualar picture it is the one spitting

Since you actually have answers, can they  mate?

Yes but with another 2 headed one. The sexual organs are around the same spot (belly button) and then the male mounts the female while she is on her back/side. In short its like perpendicular rather than just straight behind as in most Earth animals.

ummm, what's the point of having two heads?
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

well if it had a single brain like the puppeteers of the Ringworld series by Larry Niven, and it was in the body, it could have two headlike extensions with a mouth and eyes.

otherwise I don't see much point in having two actual heads. Although having one end bieng a fake 'head' is a different matter as its a form of camoflauge.

So one can eat while the other looks out for danger.

there's a good reason NOT to have two heads.  your reflexes would get mixed up.  with two brains distant from eachother, they would each be trying to do the same thing and the signals would get mixed up.  if you had a single central brain the signals would take too long to get from your eyes to the brain.

Alien two-headed weridos would probably have brains that work differently than ours.  It is entirely conceivable that creatures could still function even if they had multiple brains.  Lots of real life animals get by just fine with zero brains.
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

Here is my Umbilical Stilt Walker. It is a tall creature in which has 3 sub creatures on it. The main creature has 3 long legs and 3 eyes with a mushroom-like head. Coming out of its mushroom head are 3 little creatures connected by durable umbilical cord tails. The main creature has no mouth and depends upon the smaller ones to live. If one get pulled off it can grow another little creature. The little umbilical creatures jump on to nearby trees and eat fruit, nuts, leaves and insects. Also occasionally eggs. Each one has a small brain in which it uses to navigate the treetops.

The main creatures brain is constantly looking out for predators and new trees to travel to. When walking they peach atop the head until they can jump off and climb around the tree tops for food. When getting water they dangle down and slurp up the water. The creature breathes out of the bottom on the mushroom head. So air goes out to the little creatures but food comes back to the main body to be digested in the huge gut atop the tripod legs.

now that is a better version of a multiple-head creature.  each of the sub-heads has a semi-independent function and a specific area of the body to work with, and it actually makes sense.

This is a very simple creature. The first one I have tried to put together. Basically it has many feet like a caterpillar which it uses to roll along with. The feet contain the mouths of the creature to absorb either grass, nutrients from the ground (like a worm) of similar. The circular green area is the digestive system and the brain is the red area in the center supported by several tubes that provide nutrition. It has no weapons and relies on speed for defense.

Here is my Vacsac creature. It is both an air and water creature. While in the air it fills its huge blimp like sacs with hydrogen it in which it separates out from water. Its tail has 2 pairs of wing rudders. When they are kept up they are used as a rudder. But when they flap they can be made to use forward. Or a combination of both. It can also float with the wind by using the wing/rudders like sails rather than flapping them.

 Below its body it has 8 squid-like tentacles in which it can grasp up prey in both the sea or air. It has a strange mouth that has rowssharp cutting teeth all around. After boring into its prey with this mouth it get suck up into the body. It has 2 compound eye on eye stalks like a lobster and has 2 huge nostrils behind the eyes. It it must escape quickly it can let out the hydrogen sacs through the huge nostrils and fly backwards.

When underwater it uses more conventional methods of buoyancy by just sucking up air from the surface. It is both at home in either environment but its biggest fear is getting one of its sacs popped. If that happens it can die. Thankfully they are very strong membranes that are still light. Also in the air it can just float around waiting for prey and ambush it. Its coloring are like sharks or orcas in that they are dark on the top while light on the bottom. This is so those looking up will have trouble seeing it against the light blue sky. And for those looking down it will be hard to see against the dark blue ocean.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
