Imagine finding a two-headed snake in your home that your cat brought in. Well, that’s what exactly happened to a Florida family.
The Rogers family own an adventurous cat, and she enjoys bringing presents from the outside into the house. This time, she found a rare snake with two heads, and the Rogers’ said this pretty much tops any other gift she’s given them.
Unordinary to stumble upon a two-headed snake with two tongues, the family stored it in a plastic container and reached out reptile specialists on how to care for it. The snake was transferred to the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute and is being closely cared for.
The institute shared an explanation as to why the snake was born this way. It “happens during embryo development when two monozygotic twins failed to separate, leaving the heads conjoined onto a single body. Both head’s tongue flick and react to movement, but not always in the same way.”
