The owners of the Reptile Room say on Wednesday night, a litter of baby redtail boas was born.

To their surprise, one of the babies arrived with two heads. Both heads are breathing and flicking their tongues.

Experts say two-headed snakes are rare and usually don't have a long life expectancy.

The snake is now on display at the Reptile Room on A Street in Hayward.
