2-headed snake going on display at wildlife center

October 18, 2018

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky wildlife center says it plans to display a rare find: a two-headed copperhead.

A statement from the Department of Fish and Wildlife says the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort will exhibit the snake for the public, barring any complications in the reptile’s health, after Thursday.

Officials say a Leslie County couple donated the snake to the facility for educational purposes after finding it in their yard this month.

The Salato Center is open Tuesday through Saturday until Nov. 24, when it closes for the winter.
