A family in Ware Shoals, SC found a snake with 2 heads. I've heard of and seen that before, only this one has heads at both ends of its body, which while I'm sure has occured before, I've never seen it. Thought some people might find this interesting.

"Just watching them feed, often fighting over which head will swallow the prey, shows that feeding takes a good deal of time, during which they would be highly vulnerable to predators," said Burghardt. "They also have a great deal of difficulty deciding which direction to go, and if they had to respond to an attack quickly they would just not be capable of it."


which way do I go

ouroboros
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end (compare with phoenix). It can also represent the idea of primordial unity related to something existing in or persisting from the beginning with such force or qualities it cannot be extinguished. The Ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism, but has also been frequently used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of the alchemist's opus. It is also often associated with Gnosticism, and Hermeticism. Carl Jung interpreted the Ouroboros as having an archetypal significance to the human psyche.[citation needed] The Jungian psychologist Erich Neumann writes of it as a representation of the pre-ego "dawn state", depicting the undifferentiated infancy experience of both mankind and the individual child.[2]

that is a deep find op
snf

Its an interesting deformity but I don't see it living very long in their care. In fact they shouldn't even bother naming it. "Hey, Y'all, this is my cool snake, WHAT!!! its dead? Maybe I shouldn't 'ave put it in an air tight container.

Very cool find!! I would not like to find a snake in my yard, but this one would pull my curiosity before my fear!!
I bet it would be frustrating trying to go one way and having another dictate if you could or couldn't! Lol!
Thanks for sharing! This is very interesting! Star&Flag!!

Anomaly, Not Evolution

Two-headed snakes typically occur in the same way that Siamese twins do. A developing embryo begins to split into identical twins but then stops part way, leaving the twins joined. Among humans, 75 percent of conjoined twins are stillborn or die within 24 hours.


From your link Spoon. Ive actually seen those before, but never seen one with a head at both ends.

I want to see an MRI on this thing.
Do they share a digestive system or other key internal organs?
or Is it more like two seperate snakes that are joined together?

I wonder if there is a nuclear power plant near by?

Interesting find.

Very interesting occurrence.

Didn't someone here recently post their dream in which they fought a two-headed snake?

ETA: Here it is

I have but one question:

How exactly does this snake "do it's business"?

If food goes in both ends it has me wondering where it comes out. Sick, I know, but inquiring minds want to know.

Nice find a snake with two heads a head where it is normal to be and a head where it should be the tail.

I wonder what kind of a sign could be this...

I had the same question.

I really want to see how this thing functions internally.

It looks like it has twin digestion intake ports/fronts and possibly they connect or twist and make 1 digestive outtake port rear. But could have 2 of intake and outtake just not seen clear in images.

If it didn't combine to make 1, it must suck to be the outlet port (head).......


You always seem to get my brain going all over the place O!!

I would think it's shared. One of the heads seems less developed and is subject to the "bigger head".. no jokes please. The less developed head is probably slightly .. shall we say mentally handicapped... at least as much as snakes can think. I would think if it had to feed itself, it would have died before now. Because it doesn't seem to be able to fend for itself.

Just my thoughts, I could be wrong though.
