Referring to Animals, not White House Occupants

Long-lived 2-headed snake dies.

A two-headed snake named "We," the main attraction at the World Aquarium, has died. The 8-year-old rat snake died of natural causes during the weekend, said caretaker Leonard Sonnenschein. Most two-headed snakes survive for only a week or two.

...more than a million people have seen We over the years. Children were especially fascinated by the snake, wondering how two heads could coexist on the same body as We sometimes strained to slither in two directions at once.

Life is Confusing for 2-Headed Snakes.

Don't want a live 2-headed animal for your tyke? Try this instead.
