Default Arkansas....you scary

http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2...o-headed-snak/


While inspecting a home Wednesday, an electric worker in Arkansas found an oddity he had never seen beyond magazines and TV: a two-headed snake.

Someone in the comments at the article mentions what I noticed. The article doesn't say that the snake is a rattlesnake, and none of the photos show the tail. You would think that fact would be important. Maybe rattlesnakes are that common in Arkansas.

I stand corrected. Just looked at the definitive triangular head.I killed a snake inside my house years ago to find out later than it was a rat snake.

What part of the north are you in? I'm in Northwest Illinois and we've got a few of them around here. Someone is occasionally bitten, but not often. Just timber Rattlers around here, no cottonmouths or those Damm Copperheads.
