Headed snake in India

I was so surprised to see this picture when a friend of mine sent it to me. This is a snake found in a temple at Karnataka.
Looking like a creature from mythology, multi-headed animals occur in real life as conjoined or parasitic twins. It is not just in mythology that creatures are given to have two or more heads. This condition where an animal or human which has more than one head is termed as polycephaly caused due to developmental abnormality during gene mutation.
