Snake Found With Head on Each End of Its Body

Here's one case in which a second head probably isn't that big of a help. According to WHNS, a family in South Carolina discovered a snake in the yard with a head on each end of its body.

The Logan family was puzzled to make the find and are unsure how the creature survives, but have been taking care of the reptile for several weeks.



Biology teachers at a nearby high school have identified it as a rouge earth snake, but say they have never seen a mutation like this. A two-headed snake is a rare occurrence, but when they are found, their heads are usually side by side. That this snake has noggins on both ends of its body may make it one-of-a-kind.

"One head's bigger and one's more dominant than the other, but they both seem to control the body, the main head will do one thing then the other part is trying to go the opposite direction," the mother of the Logan family told WHNS.

One head may be dominant, but the weaker brain still holds some control. The Logan family says they have seen the snake crawl one way, only to have the other head desire a change and slither in the other direction

There is no way a snake with two heads at each end could live......clue.....no anus!!! Biology teachers at this high school...they must have went to Liberty University.

C'mon guys. Stop propagating ridiculous garbage just to get a news story out of it. It's not another head. It's simply a snubbed tail. If the local "biologists" that were consulted are indeed legit, I'm sure they are horrified that they were credited with corroborating the existence of another head. This is journalism at its worst. Sheesh...

Can you imagine their dialogue? "Hey, we're going this way!" "No we're going this way, I saw some mice tail" "You're thinking with your other head" "You ARE my other head.... ass!"
