A beautiful "bicephalic" (or two-headed) albino Honduran milk snake, or Lampropeltis triangulum hondurensis.

In 2011, A University of Central Florida biologist says a rare, two-headed albino milk snake was born in Florida, USA. Albino snakes don't have dark pigmentation in their skin. 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.
