The female two-headed western ratsnake, named Tiger-Lily, was found by a family in Stone County in autumn 2017 and was donated to the Department of Conservation's Shepherd of the Hills Conservation Centre.
The department announced Tiger-Lily's birthday party will be held Saturday at the Scenic Overlook parking lot of MDC's Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area in Branson, reported United Press International (UPI) news agency.
MDC Interpretive Centre Manager Alison Bleich said Tiger-Lily is now nearly 5 feet long.
Both heads want to eat, but they only have one esophagus, Bleich said in the birthday party announcement. We put a small cup over one head while the other eats, then switch. Otherwise, both would be trying to grab the same mouse. - BERNAMA-UPI
