Seven-Headed Snake: Real or Hoax?

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.

Captions
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.

Bottom Line
Images showing a three-headed or seven-headed snake are digitally-altered, and do not show a real creature.

    It is so alarming that so many people are using altered photos and the Bible just to spread lies. Please enough of these. Facebook becomes a network of lies if we will not try try to look and find the truth. Of course FB won’t be able to control what people would post unless there is a complain from our friends or people who see our posts.

  2. ^ its cleary fake…
