Two-Headed Chinese Cobra Discovered In The Infamous Town of Yulin

A snake breeder, known as Mr. Huang, discovered a two-headed baby Chinese cobra on his farm in the abominable town of Yulin, Southern China. People's Daily Online reported that the mutant snake was able to stay alive even without drinking or eating.

The snake's second head moved independently since both heads had their own brain. This resulted the two heads often trying to move in opposite directions. Sometimes, they would even attack and try to swallow each other.

Mr. Huang handed over the venomous Chinese cobra at Nanning Zoo, and hoped that it will live longer. However, a zookeeper at Nanning Zoo, named Li Keqi, said they cannot assure the survival of the snake.

According to Keqi: "The snake has been alive for 10 days now and has been with us for two, during which time it has already changed its skin once. But even though the snake is stable condition now, there is no way of telling whether it will be able to live on, as it still does not eat or drink water."

Polycephaly, or the condition of having two heads, is quite common among snakes. Although polycephalic snakes have short lifespan which usually lasts for only a few months, there was a two-headed rat snake which allegedly lived for 20 years.
