Five headed Snake is not myths or legends and are actually born all the time in the wild and in captivity. The condition of being with five heads is also called Polycephaly, which means you have more heads. Five headed snakes are rare but do occur in the wild and in captivity. Snakes with five heads occur when the embryo inside an egg does not divide completely. In the case of identical twins, one embryo splits into five instead of one. An egg containing a five-headed snake is an egg that was initially going to keep twins. The Twins simply do not separate properly, like any other animal with five heads.
In general, snakes can live 1-2 years in captivity, where they are well fed and there are no predators, depending on the species. In nature, this period may be significantly limited for two-headed snakes that can not escape predators well. If the snake with two heads is able to eat properly, and the two heads are not able to bite one another, a five-headed snake can live longer than any other snake. A famous snake named We who lived at the World Aquarium in St. Louis lived until 8 years.
All five-headed snakes are different because of what they can not divide as embryos. Some share the stomach and throat, but they have two mouths, while others will have two stomachs and two separate gorges. The snakes stomach separated will each eat their prey, but they can fight for their prey, if you head has prey in its mouth, while the other does not.
The five-headed snake symbolizes many different things in various cultures. Snakes with five heads are a variety of characters from Greek mythology and Egyptian deities in Hinduism and other folklore from around the world. It is one amazing creature that has deluded the earth and science, more strangely, but it has been sighted in many places of India in Karnataka, Assam, Sikkim and other places. To some it may seem fake or photoshopped, but just search google and you can find videos of it also.
