    "This two-headed copperhead was found in northern Virginia," herpetologist J.D. Kleopfer, a reptiles and amphibians specialist for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, wrote on Facebook, "Wild bicephalic snakes are exceptionally rare, because they just don’t live that long. Too many challenges living day to day with two heads."

    Check out this amazing x-ray that shows how the snake has managed to stay alive.

    "Thanks to the Wildlife Center of Virginia we were able to determine that the left head has the dominant esophagus and the right head has the more developed throat for eating." Kleopfer continues.

    Twitter had twice as many thoughts about this little guy.

    Crisis, crisis everywhere — and a photo of a snake with two heads keeps popping up in my timeline! #SnakesWhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes?

    *picture of a snake with two heads* Snapchat: You've never seen a snake like this! Me: A two faced snake? Well I most certainly have!

    There are copperheads in this state? With two heads? Everyone tuck your pants into your boots, cause Waynesboro is 30 minutes away. I gotta get through this life ... https://t.co/PV4i4vk0Kp

    Right now the snake is with a private reptile keeper with viper experience, but they hope to transfer it to a zoo soon. Keep both your heads up, little buddy!
