While it is not surprising for some people to opt for reptiles as pets, a mother of three in Louisiana has one of the most unique pets under her watch: A snake with two heads!
As Tanee Janusz, 39, is a wildlife educator, it is not really surprising why she took in the western rat snake with two heads that was found by her fellow member of naturalist society. Janusz believes that, if her friend had not found the snake slithering around his garden, some people would have already killed it as its slithers slowly.
Without question, two-headed snakes are rare.
Janusz said in an interview:
“Two-headed snakes are not totally unheard of, but they are pretty rare and this is the first time I have been in charge of caring for one. I have three kids who thought it was the coolest thing in the world.”
Janusz considers the snake as twins, and has named them Filé and Gumbo.
According to her, while they share the same body, Filé and Gumbo have different personalities from one another. Nonetheless, both are feisty and often wrestle when they cannot seem to agree on what direction to go.
The reptile is now almost a year old and Janusz brings it with her in school tours, libraries, and scout groups to educate people about the rare animal. Apart from Janusz herself, her three kids namely Nick, 17, Josh, 14, and Katie, 11, also look after the two-headed snake. Additionally, Janusz also has several other rescue animals: seven snakes, a frog, three turtles, two cockroaches, millipedes, a tarantula, a bearded dragon, grasshoppers, a hedgehog, birds, dogs and a cat.
Unlike other two-headed animals that don’t live long due to genetic issues, Janusz’s pet is now 10-months-old and is in good health.
Two-headed animals happen when the embryo fails to fully divide. This results in an animal having two brains, although they share a single respiratory system, digestive tract and body. While animals with such deformity die prematurely due to genetic issues, Filé and Gumbo have been in a tip-top shape since Janusz adopted them in September last year.

Indonesian Fishing Competition Participant Gets A Shocking Catch: A Dead Man’s Body
All the while, he thought he caught a big fish!
A supposedly exciting and fun-filled fishing competition in Indonesia turned into a horrific event when one of the participants made one shocking catch. While he thought that he caught a big fish, the angler had the shock of his life upon discovering that a corpse was at the other end of his fishing rod.
The fishereman, identified only as Safari, was one of the hundreds of participants at the recent fishing competition on the Citarum River in Bandung, Indonesia. Realizing that his fishing rod has hooked on something, he thought that he caught a big fish because of the weight of his supposed catch at the other end of the rod. After wrestling with the “big fish” for almost two minutes, Safari had the shock of his life as a human hand emerged out of the surface.
Citarum River in Bandung, Indonesia is considered to be one of the world’s most polluted rivers.
Woman Almost Goes Blind After Sleeping With Her Mascara On For 25 Years
This should serve as a warning to all ladies who sleep with make-up on.
A 50-year-old woman learned why it is important to remove all traces of make-up before going to bed. The mother of two recently got medical help because her eyes are often irritated. The visit to the eye doctor revealed that there were tiny black lumps under her eyelids. The calcified bumps were actually residue from her mascara, which she had not removed for 25 years.
Theresa Lynch of Sydney, Australia has suffered from eye irritation for a long time. In addition to a strange sensation just under her eyelids, the housekeeper also complained that her eyes often leaked with a sticky discharge. The pain eventually became unbearable so Lynch asked for the help of Dr. Dana Robaei. The two discovered that several calcified bumps, or concretions have accumulated as old mascara lodged itself in Lynch's eyes due to her poor make-up removal routine.
Theresa Lynch admitted that she rarely removed her mascara before sleeping and the nasty habit led to residue getting embedded under her eyelids.
Patient Plays Guitar While Doctors Perform Surgery On His Brain
Yes, he was fully awake during the operation.
A musician from Bangladesh found himself on the operating table after he was diagnosed to suffer from a condition called musician’s cramp, which required a portion of his brain to be operated. However, unlike other major operations, the patient was not only wide awake during the procedure but was strumming his guitar, too.
31-year old patient Taskin Ibna was diagnosed with a rare condition called hand dystonia (otherwise known as musician’s cramp). According to the professional guitar player and computer engineer, it was in 2013 when he first experienced discomfort in his left middle finger while playing the instrument. Eventually, the same sensation controlled his whole hand.
Taskin Ibna was diagnosed with hand dystonia, also known as musician’s cramp, which caused him to experience a weird sensation in his left hand.
