A wildlife and conservation research hospital says a two-headed snake recently found near the nation's capital may be sent to an educational facility.

The Wildlife Center of Virginia says the two-headed Eastern Copperhead was found in a northern Virginia neighborhood last week. It says a state herpetologist brought the snake to the hospital Thursday for an examination.

A hospital release says the two heads were found to have two tracheas and two esophagi, but share one heart and set of lungs. The Charlotte Observer reports state biologists believe both heads are capable of biting and distributing venom.

State herpetologist J.D. Kleopfer says in a Facebook post that two-headed snakes are extremely rare because "they just don't live that long." He says he hopes to donate the snake to a zoo.

Earlier this month, a bicephalic copperhead was discovered in a yard in northern Virginia.

Radiographs conducted by the Wildlife Center of Virginia showed that each head has its own oesophagus and trachea, but they have to share the same heart and lungs.

Extracting venom would be doubly beneficial.

As, most anti-venom costs can be up to $10,000.00

You are right Dragon

Like with Homeopathic Medicine, they use low dosage of (what causes your illness in the first place, or something structurally similar) to heal it, and it really does work. Seen great results.

Never knew it could be so expensive though for anti-venom.
So in the US if you were to be bitten by a snake and needed that, you'd have to pay that much?
