BRANSON, Mo. – A rare two-headed snake has slithered in Missouri for several years, and conservation officials plan to celebrate the snake’s birthday this weekend.
The Missouri Department of Conservation will host a birthday party to celebrate the sixth birthday of the snake, named Tiger-Lily.
The party will run from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday at the Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area in Branson.
Tiger-Lily, a female snake, was first found in Stone County in the fall of 2017. Tiger-Lily is almost five feet long and has a healthy appetite, according to MDC officials.
Conservation officials have been treating Tiger-Lily for several years. A two-headed snake like Tiger-Lily might struggle in the wild with eating and escaping dangerous situations. MDC officials say a two-headed snake’s chances of survival are much better.
Saturday’s birthday party will include crafts, party favors, and presentations with the snake. For more information on the event, click here.
