A Friday, Oct. 28, 2011 photo provided by Daniel Parker of Sunshineserpents.com shows a two-headed albino Honduran milk snake in Ridge Manor, Fla.

Parker, a University of Central Florida biologist, says that most two-headed snakes have typical colouration, but a lack of dark pigmentation means 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.
