A mum of three in Louisiana, USA, has adopted a rare two-headed snake.

Wildlife educator Tanee Janusz, 39, took in the western rat snake when a neighbour found it in his garden.

The reptile, which is 10 months old and a foot long, has two heads. The genetic defect happens once in about 10,000 births.

The deformity — caused when the embryo does not fully divide — has resulted in the animal having two brains but a single respiratory system, digestive tract and body.

She has named the heads Filé and Gumbo and refers to them as “The Twins” because they have different personalities.

While Gumbo is on the dominant side, both are “feisty” and they often end up wrestling after trying to go in opposite directions.
