A snake breeder in Florida brought to the vets a snake with two heads. During an examination, they made an amazing discovery.

 

The two-week-old strange reptile was born with two distinct heads. The snake has one shared body and it behaves quite normally, like a healthy individual.

 

The examinations show that the two-headed snake has also two hearts, which is a very rare anomaly. Unfortunately, veterinarian Laura Tylen says that most snakes born this way die because they can not get enough food, and they can have common kidneys and problems with bowel movements.
