The snake, which was photographed by Jason Talbott, 42, from Kansas, USA, whose friends found the snake living in the wild, before taking it into captivity.
Bizarrely, one of the heads is more aggressive than the other and attacks the other one.
But hilariously, without working together the snake was unable to bite anything effectively as, according to Jason, both heads were required to move the body.
Although it looked like a fearsome beast, the snake was harmless and Jason admitted that its bite would not be enough to break a human’s skin.
According to Jason, the likelihood is 1 in 10,000, though it is difficult to determine the precise figure because they are a wild species with an extremely low chance of survival.
Jason said: “It is estimated that it is 1 in 10,000 but it is hard to know a true number as they are wild and elusive animals and survival rate is very low. I’m a massive fan of creepy crawlies and snakes – I’ve photographed hundreds of them and received a fair few bites along the way. Fortunately they were non-venomous ones.
While the mutation is rare, the survival of such an animal is even rarer. It is in my understanding that this particular animal was not an exception to the rule. It would eat, appeared healthy, but did not survive. I was just glad to be one to photograph it.
