This two headed Kisatchie hatched last night. Apart from the two heads, he's perfect in every way. We'll just have to wait and see how long he survives.

I hope what I am about to say will not come through as terrible or revolting etc...
I have seen a double headed Californian king some time ago, and their lifespan is not even considered (unless someone has more concrete evidence to prove otherwise)
What I want to ask, if/when it dies... well I want to see the skeleton structure of these, that is something intrigues me, sorry if I'm being otherwise.

Don't worry, I don't think you're being horrible. I would also be interested to see the skeleton structure. I'd also like to see if and where it's stomach and other internal organs join.

Agree....what brains control the body and is there possibly pairs of organs?

That is amazing! Are both heads fully "functional" with flicking tongues etc. ?
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Somehow in my subconcious I'm always hoping for two heads to pop out the same egg.It's an unique animal :)

Yes, both heads are fully functional, and both tongues flicker.It will be interesting to see what happens when feeding time comes, lol!!!

Try feeding the one head before the other head so that the food does not reach the gullet at the same time. I will ask some friends who have a few double heads how they feed them. Often one head dominates the other and does all the feeding, which makes this easier. These look pretty strong.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
