Jay-c Lora asked the Naked Scientists: Hi TNSI have a question about snakes. I know there are 2-headed snakes (Polycephalic?) and there are lots of evidences about them that you could find specially in the internet. But I haven't seen a photo or a research/study of a particular snake that interested me most: a snake with head at both ends. I haven't seen a real one but lots of my friends from a place called Cordillera Region in the Philippines claimed to saw this rare snake. They say it travels by flying in circular motion. Its color varies from green to black. I did some searches in the internet and it says that such snake is called Amphisbaena, but it's a myth. Just wanted to know if there are already studies about this type of snake or scientists haven't discovered it yet. thanks! What do you think?
Here in Australia we have a snake called the "hoop snake".
Have not heard of a snake with a head at both ends. Probably this is from legends.
