A two-headed snake has gone on display at a zoo in southern Ukraine.

The Skazka (Fairytale) zoo in the Crimean city of Yalta on the Black Sea said that the albino California Kingsnake has two heads that think, react and eat separately, though one is more passive than the other.

Dmytro Tkachov, a zoo worker taking care of the snake, said he puts a barrier between the heads when feeding the snake lest one eats the other.

The snake will be on display at the zoo until mid-September. The zoo would not provide further details.
