Rare 2-headed snake found at Palm Harbor home
A rare two-headed southern black racer snake was recently found at a residence in Palm Harbor by Kay Rogers and family, Florida Fish and Wildlife says.
Rare 2-headed snake discovered by family’s cat in Florida. LiveScience reports that the Rogers family’s cat made the startling find last month, returning home with the reptile and dropping it on the living room floor. In another Facebook post, Kay Rogers explained that the family named the snake “Dos.” The unusual animal's survival odds in the wild were slim, according to the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. “Both head's tongue flick and react to movement, but not always in the same way,” the Research Institute explained. “Two-headed snakes are unlikely to survive in the wild as the two brains make different decisions that inhibit the ability to feed or escape from predators.” Check out the link to read more about this.
