Freak show acquires rare two-headed snake

Todd Ray forked out $50,000 to obtain an incredibly rare albino Honduran Milk Snake with two heads.
Named 'Medusa' after the Gorgon of Greek mythology, the snake is particularly unusual because unlike many two-headed animals this one actually does have two distinct and separate heads, not two heads melded together in to one.

"I've wanted her since the day it was born four years ago," said Ray, the owner of Venice Beach Freakshow and holder of the world record for owning the most two-headed creatures.

"I went back and forth with the owner and the price just kept getting higher."

When feeding the new snake Ray had to feed each of the heads one at a time to keep them from biting one another. At 3ft long however the unusual reptile can sometimes prove quite a handful.

Those looking to see Medusa first hand can find her at the Venice Beach Freakshow from Saturday.

"I really think she is the star - especially for snakes," said Ray.

Wow! What a beauty that one is. Love one scene where one head wanted to go one direction and the other wanted to seemingly go elsewhere. Always liked snakes so this was really neat to see. The music was cool too. Thanks for posting this.

Great find and im happy it has a good home. For the price he paid, it will be very well taken care of!

That sure is eyecatching. I bet a lot of people come to look at something so strange. I guess, essentially, what I mean is... His milksnake brings all the boys to the yard...

I wonder which brain that is in charge of the body? It looks like it is the left head. The right one seems more like an appendix coming out of the body. Or maybe its more like a "socialist democracy" of sort, where the get equal amount of time per day to be "in charge" of the body

I have seen dozens of photos of bi-cephalic snakes, but to see them in motion is something else.
