5-headed snake found in India

This is a snake found in a temple at Kamataka, India.

Looking like creatures 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 by developmental abnormality during gene mutation.
