An image circulating shows a snake with seven heads. Is this photo real or fake?
The image is fake. It is merely a digitally-altered photo of a normal one-headed snake.
Several versions of this photo have circulated over the past couple of years. In 2012, a three-headed variety of this photo was circulated, and by 2013 the number of heads had increased to 7.
A caption circulating with the seven-headed photo reads:
GOD SAVE US. THIS SNAKE WAS FOUND IN THE MOUNTAINS OF HONDURAS. AND THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF A SNAKE WITH 7 HEADS AND WITH THIS WE SEE THAT IT IS FULFILLING EVERYTHING THAT IS WRITTEN. LORD HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOUL’S
The three-headed snake was claimed to be photographed in India when that image circulated in 2012.
As you can see, however, the original photo clearly shows a snake with one head:
While multi-headed snakes have been found in nature (a phenomenon known as Polycephaly), these are typically two-headed snakes, not three or seven as the photos above imply.
Images showing a three-headed or seven-headed snake are digitally-altered, and do not show a real creature.
