A snake enthusiast in Kansas, US has captured a scary looking two-headed baby snake whose one head is eerily more aggressive than the other.
43-year-old Jason Talbott captured the snake and took it into captivity. He took a video of it slithering on his hand and shared it online.
In the video, one head of the snake is seen trying to bite Jason's hand as well as the other head. However, as both heads depend on the same body, they need each other to move, making for a fascinating and eery sight.
Jason wasn't hurt by the snake's bite, and he noted that it was too small for its bites to pierce human skin. He said his friends alerted him when they found the snakes in the wild and he jumped at the opportunity to capture it.
Jason added: "What was funny about the snake was that the two-heads had different personalities. One of the heads was very aggressive and kept trying to bite at objects. But the problem was, because they both shared the same body, the aggressive head needed the other one's cooperation to move. It was quite funny to watch, really."
Snake experts estimate that one in 10,000 snakes are two headed. However, they are difficult to find in the wild due to high mortality rates. Furthermore, there have been reports of the two heads attacking and even killing each other.
Here is the video of the two-headed baby snake.
