A farmer found a two-headed baby snake in north-eastern Turkey. The snake, now at a reptile house, must be fed "small portions" due to its unique anatomy. From BBC News:
Cuneyt Alpguven, who works at Antalya Aquarium's reptile house, says two-headed snakes are very rare and have little chance of surviving in the wild. "Being two-headed is a major disadvantage, because its anatomical structure makes it more vulnerable to attacks while it also draws the attention of predators."
Nathaniel Buck Harrison of Oracle, Arizona sought vengeance against a foe by hitting him on the head with a board and then attempting to sic a rattlesnake on him. Apparently, the snake declined to participate.
