This picture showing a live three headed snake on Indian roadway started circulating on many social networking websites. The message that comes with the picture states that it is a beautiful creation of nature.
Hoax or Fact:
The messages that come with this picture showing a three headed snake on Indian roads claim that the picture is a real one, and it is beautiful creation of nature. The story however is a hoax. The three headed snake picture is not real, it is a manipulated one.
The original picture is only a single headed snake found on roadside somewhere in India, which some prankster might have photoshopped to make it look like a real three headed snake and started spreading it.
Certain animals, including snakes, are sometimes born with more than one head. This is a rare phenomenon called Polycephaly. But the picture in the message is definitely not a case of Polycephaly.
