Two-Headed Snake! – A Cool Snake Story
Snakes are really cool!
What would you call We the albino black rat snake-fortunate or unfortunate? But why ask this question? Because We is a two-headed snake, one head male and one head female. We had two eggs. The eggs were stuck close side by side. So when the eggs hatched, out came We, a two headed snake! Says a volunteer,”If those two heads saw each other, they would probably shove each other’s head and yell at each other:’ Hey, get out of my space!’ ” We died at age eight, in 2007 from natural causes.
Here’s a news story about We’s death: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/19334041/#.UuHwMRDn_IU
