RIDGE MANOR, Fla. (AP) -- A University of Central Florida biologist says a rare, two-headed albino milk snake was recently born.
Daniel Parker told Orlando television station WKMG ( http://bit.ly/tPnAk5 ) the snake hatched last week in an incubation container.
Parker says most two-headed snakes have typical coloration. Albino snakes don't have dark pigmentation in their skin. Albino milk snakes appear in bright shades of red, orange and white.
The biologist says two-headed snakes have been documented to live as long as 20 years in captivity. But with two brains giving commands to a single body, Parker says the snake would have a difficult time surviving in the wild.
