Two-headedness isn’t a consequence of scientific experimentation; it happens naturally. Conjoined twins are produced from monozygotic twin embryos, and the incidence follows the same pattern. Brian Barczyk, a wildlife enthusiast and known YouTuber, recently uploaded a video showing a two-headed snake eating two mice at the same time.
“Two-headed Ben and Jerry eating,” he captioned the video, which has, inevitably, left many people astonished and others interested. The snake’s heads operate independently to devour two mice in the video.
The video has received over 2.7 lakh views and hundreds of comments since it was released last week. After seeing the movie, many viewers were filled with questions, while others expressed surprise.
“Do they have two digestive systems or do they meet along the way and merge into one?” wondered one Instagram user, a question shared by many others.
Another user questioned, “Do they have two digestive systems?”
A third said, “The pattern on the back of their heads looks like a happy face.”
“What are their ages? It’s incredible that they’re still alive “As one Instagram user pointed out.
Two-headed snakes are not unheard of, despite their rarity. In Odisha, a unique wolf snake with two completely developed heads was spotted last year. The wolf snake, like the snake in this clip, had two heads that operated independently of one another.
Bicephaly is characterized by the presence of two heads. Bicephaly occurs when two monozygotic twins fail to split during embryo development, leaving the heads attached to a single body, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Two-headed snakes are unlikely to survive in the wild, according to the Commission, since “the two brains make distinct judgments that restrict the capacity to feed or escape from predators.”
