More details released about 2-headed baby snake

A state herpetologist released new details about a two-headed baby Eastern copperhead snake found outside a home in Woodbridge, Virginia, WTVR reported.

The snake was examined at the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

The center received the snake on Sept. 20, according to the center’s website

“It appears as though the left head is more dominant -- it’s generally more active and responsive to stimulus,” the center said on its website. “Radiographs revealed that the two-headed snake has two tracheas (the left one is more developed), two esophaguses (the right one is more developed), and the two heads share one heart and one set of lungs. Based on the anatomy, it would be better for the right head to eat, but it may be a challenge since the left head appears more dominant.”

Photos and video of the snake went viral on Facebook after Virginia Wildlife Management and Control shared them earlier this month, WTVR reported.
