Two-headed snake named Ben and Jerry filmed eating two mice at the same time

This is the incredible moment a two-headed snake devoured its meals using both mouths at the same time.

Reptile expert Brian Barczyk filmed the mutated serpent, named Ben and Jerry, eating two mice and hish video has since gone viral.

He shared it to his fans on Instagram, saying: "So my two-headed snake Ben and Jerry are both eating right now. They don't always eat at the same time actually, in this case both of them are eating each side."

The brown and yellow snake is seen swallowing the baby mice slowly but, as it only has one digestive system, some viewers asked if it would choke on the food.

One loyal fan commented: "If you watch his vlog he mentions one of them, Jerry I think, won't take food unless Ben is already eating and for the most part Ben does all the eating but he tried to get Jerry involved too."

Another wrote: "That is crazy! Can't wait to go back to Michigan and check out the place!"

A third asked: "Somebody mind explaining how does a two-headed snake come about…how does this mutation even happen?"

Brian, who also works at a reptile zoo "The Reptarium" in Michigan, said: "A friend produced them. It is a freak of nature and totally unexpected.

"It took me 1 1/2 years of begging before he sold them to me.

"We have about 10 one-of-a-kind animals [in the Reptarium] including Ben and Jerry, also a two headed turtle, and several one-of-a-kind albino and other colour mutations."

It comes after a cat owner called the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for help when her pet brought in a two-headed snake into the house.

A spokesperson from the FWCC confirmed the snake was a black racer snake, saying: "This phenomenon, termed bicephaly, is uncommon but happens during embryo development when two monozygotic twins failed to separate, leaving the heads conjoined onto a single body.
