Three-eyed snake found on Australian highway

A three-eyed snake was discovered by rangers of Territory Parks and Wildlife on the Arnhem Highway near Humpty, 40km (25 miles) south-east of Darwin (Australia).

It was about 40cm long.



Nicknamed Monty Python, the baby carpet python died simply weeks once it had been found in March.

“The snake is peculiar as an x-ray revealed it was not two separate heads forged together, rather it appeared to be one skull with an additional eye socket and three functioning eyes”, Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife told on facebook.

The 40cm-long (15 inch) reptile had been struggling to eat due to its deformity, officials told the BBC.
