COMM: This young two-headed grass snake was found in the wild in Croatia, sunbathing by a garage. COMM: Having multiple heads is called polycephaly, and the rare condition occurs in the same
way as conjoined twins, where developing embryo begins to split into identical twins but stops
part way. COMM: While two-headed snakes can often survive in captivity, they don’t tend to fare well
in the wild as each head has its own personality. COMM: They can fight for food and be uncoordinated in movement, and are therefore more vulnerable
to predators. COMM: This snake was given to the local zoo, so that it might have the chance to live as
long as possible under professional supervision.
