A two headed snake in the United States is having its 16th birthday.
The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center, which is operated by the Missouri Department of Conservation, has a special two headed rat snake.
The two heads have fully functional brains and it will turn 16 on Saturday. Visitors are being invited to join the celebration.
Rat snakes typically live about 10 years in the wild, and conjoined twins usually live for far fewer years because their body’s lack of dominant leadership makes them an easy target for predators.
The birthday party will feature crafts, games (snakes and ladders) and cake for visitors.
