A woman from North Carolina, USA, got the shock of her life when she found a two-headed snake in her home.
Jeannie Wilson was busy cleaning her sunroom when she saw the two-headed reptile slithering into view. According to her, she didn’t know that the snake had two heads on first sight.
I saw something in the corner of my eye, and I said, ‘lord, that’s a snake. The first thing I thought was, ‘Oh gosh, something has stepped on you and mashed your head’
While the snake may look dangerous, Jeannie described it as “very gentle to handle” and never tried to bite her. She informed a local tv station that she took the snake to Catawba Science Centre where it was identified as a rat snake.
They told me it was around four months old and was a rat snake and was fixing to shed
Two-headed snakes are rare to spot but develop in a similar way to conjoined twins where a developing embryo begins to split into identical twins but stops midway.
