ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This is an X-ray of a two-headed albino Honduran milk snake that recently hatched at the home of University of Central Florida biologist Daniel Parker, proprietor of Sunshine Serpents. (via The Telegraph)
I’m not normally one for cute names, but I kind of hope they call it Zaphod.
I am sure that snake is smarter than Zaphod.
I recall one summer back in the 90s when my brother and I managed to interbreed coral snakes and planaria. The result looked much like this fellow. We called him Frank.
It’s not quite Monster X. Sure looks like it could be Monster Y.
It’s a baby Hydra. Just don’t start chopping any of those things off or you’ll just end up with another mouth to feed.
The weird thing is each head has only one fork of the tongue.
The junction point of the vertebrae sure looks like a fused mess. They should try an MRI to get a view of the esophagi and tracheaeaeaeae..
D0es it get to vote twice as some other Florida voters do?
I’m just impressed with how tasty that snake looks: orange creamsicle with a strawberry swirl…
or maybe watermelon. yum. I’m tellin’ ya, that is one delicious snake.
Notwithstanding the snake part…
Was gonna do a Strauss-Kahn beat but couldn’t figure it out.
Why do two-headed snakes always seem to bifurcate near the heads? Why not ever near the end of the tail?
I think they still have rudimentary shoulder bones/vertebrae and that’s where the split goes.
i want it! it’s so kyoooooot!
wow .. very awesome God’s creation is a snake
I am amazed by the color. It looks like a Sculpy figure after the artist ran out of all the ‘natural’ colors.
