THE SUN (London, UK) 18 October 02 Two heads biter than one (Andy Wilks)
With two forked tongues and four beady eyes, this slippery character boasts a head start on its rivals in the battle for survival.
The bizarre two-headed snake was captured yesterday in a hotel garden in Palma, Majorca.
Scientists do not know what made the insect-eating False Smooth Snake ? latin name Macroprotodon Cucullatus ? mutate. But expert Professor Gordon Burghardt, from Tennessee, said two heads were NOT always better than one.
He added: ?Double-headed snakes are very rare, but not unheard of.
?The trouble is they have great difficulty deciding which direction to go, so cannot respond quickly to attacks.?
