A gardener had the shock of his life when he came across this slippery customer – a snake with two heads.
Stunned Paul Carver was spraying weed killer outside his property when he spotted a number of young snakes.
On closer inspection he realised one of the reptiles had two heads and, despite its bizarre deformity, was slithering around without any problems.
Mr Carver, from Clarksville, Tennessee, phoned his friend Dale Grandstaff, an officer at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
He said: ‘My initial reaction was to step away, I just thought it was weird. Then I thought, what do I do with this thing?’
