An extremely rare two-headed and two-hearted snake was born in Florida, the National Geographic reported.
The snake bred by a Florida snake breeder was reportedly born with two separate heads emerging from a single body.
The rare animal was brought to famous veterinarian Dr. Susan Kelleher, and Dr. Lauren Thielen analyzed the snake and concluded that it is a rare example as it does not share internal organs unlike other two-headed animals and has two hearts.
"I was shocked it has two hearts," Dr. Thielen told the National Geographic and added: "But it was really cool to understand that the Siamese twin snake was really two snakes in one outer skin."
The vet also noted that the snake has a higher chance of survival as it has two digestive tracts, which will enable it to receive proper nutrition.
Although two-headed snakes generally do not live for long periods, Dr. Thielen said that the fate of the snake may prove otherwise.
