goblinpaladin, look!
It's a dragon! Or it was trying very hard to be one.

(Seriously, this is the coolest news story I've seen in a while.)

I'd seen the story before, but yours is the BEST spin on it I have seen! \o/

Well, it was rather funny - I clicked the link, which had randomly popped up on my Google homepage. And the first thing I thought when the picture loaded was, Holy shit - it looks kind of like a one-legged dragon.

Oh man, that is awesome! DRAGONS.

I translated a word as 'burninators' in Old Norse yesterday.

Looks to me like the python ate a lizard and the stomach ruptured during digestion, leading to the lizard's foot falling out...

I hope they'll release an update with the autopsy findings.

I love dragons ^_^
But that is NOT one I would like crawling along my wall *shudders*

Yeah, waking up in the middle of the night to find that was the cause of the odd scratching noise would be severely creepy.

"Such animals are often caught and preserved as lucky tokens but have very little chance of surviving in the wild anyway, especially as the heads have a tendency to attack each other."

This, seriously, is awesome.

I know! And I recall seeing a baby two-headed turtle in the news not all that long ago. It was disturbingly cute.

Like, whoa.

I found it amusing that she beat it to death with a SHOE before thinking of preserving it.

And that the double-headed snakes routinely attacked each other. :D

The sleep-disoriented mind doesn't necessarily think upon first seeing such things, Ooh - a zoological oddity! It probably thinks more along the lines of Aaaaaghkillit!

I'm not suprised she killed it to be honest, I would have if I'd woken up to that on my ceiling!

Yeah, sort of scary (although I think I may have found it more surreal than anything...)

Yeah, I don't blame her for killing the snake. I probably would have worried more about it killing me first.

BTW, is that a picture of the same snake in question? The article says it was 16 inches long, but the snake in the picture looks a lot longer than that.

Apparently it is the snake in question.
