(Newser) – A two-headed snake has gone on display at a zoo in southern Ukraine. The "Skazka" (Fairy tale) zoo in Yalta on the Black Sea said today that the albino California Kingsnake has two heads that think, react, and eat separately, though one is more passive than the other. A zoo worker taking care of the snake said he puts a barrier between the heads when feeding the snake, lest one head eat the other. The snake will be on display at the zoo until mid-September.
