Australia is native for most of the snakes you can find snakes everywhere in Australia
Do you know one thing The amethystine python or scrub python is considered Australia’s largest native snake.
Our special Three-Eyed Snake spotted in Northern Territory, Found by rangers near a small town called Humpty Doo just outside of Darwin. It was a juvenile, approximately 40cm long.
The three-eyed carpet python looks to be sporting three fully functioning eyes with an abnormal surplus eye sprouting from the top of its scaled forehead.
From time to time, we see snakes with polycephaly in the wild
The condition of having two separate heads but the rangers don’t think that’s the case here.
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.
It was generally agreed that the eye likely developed very early during the embryonic stage of development. It is extremely unlikely that this is from environmental factors and is almost certainly a natural occurrence as malformed reptiles are relatively common.
