Imagine walking in your garden and almost stepping on a 2-headed snake - that means 4 fangs, not just 2. That's exactly what happened on the 20th of September.

An American saw the snake and quickly grabbed a camera to film it before calling the authorities.

2-headed snakes are extremely hard to find in the wild, according to a report by TimesLIVE.

The Virginia Department of Game and Fisheries shared on social media that the snake is being taken cared of by people with experience with venomous snakes.
