I was so surprised to see this picture when a friend of mine sent it to me. This is a snake found in a temple at Karnataka.

Looking like a creature from mythology, multi-headed animals occur in real life as conjoined or parasitic twins. It is not just in mythology that creatures are given to have two or more heads. This condition where an animal or human which has more than one head is termed as polycephaly caused due to developmental abnormality during gene mutation.

Many mythologies like Hindu, Chinese, Greek,etc has references to such a 5 headed snake in their epics. We have so far read about such a snake only in historic stories and epics . I’m sure it will be surprising to most of you as much as myself, to see such a rare species still being alive.

Update 2:

This images are look like fake.

Five Headed Cobra Hoax Images

Outline
Circulating images supposedly depict a five-headed cobra found at Kukke Subrahmanya, a Hindu temple in the Indian state of Karnataka.

Brief Analysis
The images do not show a real five-headed snake. Four of the images are in fact photographs of normal, one-headed snakes that have been altered in an image manipulation program to appear that the snakes are five-headed. One of the images may show a toy or model that has been staged for the photograph.

Detailed Analysis
Messages that are currently circulating via email, blogs, and social networking websites, claim that set of attached images depict a “rare” five-headed Cobra that was found at Kukke Subrahmanya, a Hindu temple located about 105 km from Mangalore in the state of Karnataka, in southern India. There are two main versions of the messages that contain a different set of five-headed snake images. Both versions claim that the snake was found at Kukke Subrahmanya.

However, none of the five-headed snake pictures are genuine. The three images contained in the first example shown above are in fact nothing more than digitally manipulated versions of a set of photographs that show a normal, one-headed cobra. The following photographs, which have been published on a number of websites, show the original source images used to create the fake five-headed snake images:

Photo Credit: Tien Chiu

The original photographs were taken at a snake farm in Thailand in 2003 by blogger, Tien Chiu. I sent an email to Tien Chiu asking about the photographs and she responded that she indeed took the photographs but the snake was definitely not five-headed. It seems that someone has used Tien Chiu’s photographs as the source images for the five-headed snake hoax without her permission or knowledge.

The first image shown in the second example above is also clearly manipulated from a photograph of a normal one-headed cobra. The following close-up screenshot of the image shows how the snake’s head in the original photograph was replicated and joined together to create the five-headed manipulation:

The second image in the second example above, may also be a manipulated photograph. However, the strange colouration and shape of the “snake” suggest that it may actually be a model or a toy that has been placed in the water for the photograph. Moreover, although the message suggests that the two images show the same, five-headed snake, it is very clear that the second image does not depict the same snake that is shown in the first image.

Thus, the supposed five-headed snake shown in these images represent nothing more than the fairly amateurish “photoshopping” work of some unknown prankster. The hoax photographs have circulated widely in India, perhaps accelerated by the fact that a five-headed snake god known as Nagaraja is part of that nation’s cultural and religious heritage.

The occurrence of animals, including snakes, with more than one head is not uncommon. The condition is known as Polycephaly. However, while bicephalic (two-headed) or tricephalic (three headed) animals have been well-documented, there are no credible reports of animals with more than three heads. Animals with more than three heads abound in mythology, but do not exist in the real world.

    Its a fake photograph created to cause a flutter. I think, these people were searching for some time-pass. See the first photo where a man is standing in front of five-headed snake. People are dead-scared of single headed snake and here is a brave one standing in front of five-headed one??? Com’on, get real. Any person with common sense will point out that this is a fake one. Moreover, this type of photo is being circulated everywhere and the snake is spotted in various places. Do you think, suddenly five headed ones are appearing everywhere???

    We are taught by our elders that five-headed snakes belonged to the Lord and I think, it should be left at that instead of using photoshop to create fake pictures. After all, there should be faith left in us……..

  2. Rahul says

    Naina,
    If god can be real then why cannot a snake with 5 heads. Lets not have double standards. You talk about this pic being fake etc and gave a 1 paragraph lecture on it and next you bring in faith. They dont go hand in hand. Be humble. THere is lot that we yet dont know and let’s admit that.

  3. abhi says

    guys,, jus think bout it,, wen der can b a human being wit 3 heads y cant der b a snake wit 5 heads.. due to harmonal disorders many irregularities come up like dis.. and MISS NAINA u need to grow up!!

  4. gabz says

    hay….abhi…maybe you have to open your eyes,,,,we r leaving in new world now,,,in a high tecnology……so you think that thing, cant do,,in any application….i can do that in adobe photoshop,,,and i can prove 8 to you……

  5. Ryoku says

    I do agree that this looks too clean to be a real mutation, but as for the guy not being scared, not everyone is. The snake was supposedly found in India. Snakes are looked upon differently there than in the States or anywhere else. It makes perfect sense that a regular man would be perfectly comfortable around such a being. For one thing, such a heavy mutation would have to take its toll on an animal’s speed and precision. Less danger there. And if you know the warning signs, you know what to look for to tell you “Maybe standing here has ceased to be a good idea.” Not everyone in every location in the world was brought up to fear snakes. Simple fact.

  6. Elise says

    I am a Graphic Artist. This is very much a photoshop. If you look, not even very close, the heads in each picture are exactly the same.
    I know, the heads would be similar because if it were 5, they would be identical twins connected.
    But if you look past that, the shadow on each one is the exact same, they look the same way. On the last one, where on snake looks the other direction, you can see that he still has the same shadow as the other 4, but flipped over. So his light comes from a different direction. Not believable.

  7. aeryn says

    definitely looks like a work of photoshop. yeah, such a phenomenon is possible, but not in this case. in the 2nd and 3rd photos, the snakes are very different.

  8. andy says

    god is only real for those who Believe in him.
    it is possiBle for snakes or any other animal to have five heads. although virtually impossiBle to happen naturally, it would proBly die Before its Born.
    this picture is photoshopped.

  9. charkegirl1023 says

    Not even close… it’s freaking fake… How stupid can SOME people get?… Though I believe in God but what is fake is fake and I can say that “FIVE” head cobra is freaking fake just take a look at the 2nd pic. look at its neck closely as you go up to the head part u can see some visible marks that it only has 1 head… duh… No disrespect though you are fooling no one only a R-tard will fall that one… EPIC FAIL… case close XD

  10. Suhel says

    Well it’s absolutely a fake, its not that I had agreed this because I watched the difference explained here edited by the Photoshop. but am a bit familiar in editing and in Photoshop, I just came to the conclusion after some investigation from my side and can see the tick of the Photoshop, but I really appreciate that the person who had done this had taken a lot time and patience in editing and a hard work to bring this to appear as reality, no doubt he is a good Photoshop editor. and one more thing in this modern day there is nothing impossible to create even creating a fake video clip is also not hard with special software and next thing is if this kind of snake is available why are they not kept in exhibitions or in any zoo so to know this is a rare kind of snake and can prove this? Instead this kinds of snakes and things can be seen in pictures only, this I can say that it’s nothing else but a fake picture

  11. faheem says

    wat the fuk this all is fake nd this web side also a fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake nd f**kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  12. PRATAP RUDRA SAMAL says

    A rare family of snakes with two heads and five heads are found in Koraput, ORISSA
    IT IS TRUE.

  13. suraj says

    If that 5headed snake is real, when they can take a photograph, why cant they take a video and release it ???? and talking abt that guy standing pic.. howcme no one went to see that.. and ask that fellow where he got that… If someone had smething like that, do people leave him alone…. ?????

  14. uddipan says

    Whats an idea of Brahmin mind still working who destroyed our rich culture of natural worships and injected the superstitious belives creating 4hands, 10hands, 20heads etc…etc gods n godess. Still they are manupulating, stealing and exploiting the simpliest mind of our comming generation. Hate them and say “Stop this brutality”.

  15. uddipan says

    The Kukke Subrahmanya, a Hindu temple in the Indian state of Karnataka earned a lot of money circulating the fake 5 headed snake. The same picture publishing in their News paper in West bengal some journalists have claimed they took the photographs from different part of Bengal. It is realy a tecnique of Brahmanical mind to misguide the simliest citizen of our country for their won benefits. Hate them a lot.They should have pay back for ther won coin.

  16. lord_krishna says

    actually this cannot be possible….. if also this happens then the snake will die in its early days from birth due to mental imbalance, etc. I had one too…

  17. lord_krishna says

    this snake is a myth… its an avatar of god in hindu mythology(if you believe in god)

  18. uddipan says

    Hi, Krishna!do u know which time the Hindu religion established? Who was the founder of this “HEEN DU” religion? Are there any word “Hindu” in Veda, Mahabharata, Ramayana, Gita or any where in Upanishadas? Don’t try to put a curtain of hallucination “if you belive in god”!The great lyers always misguided the innocents in the name of God.5 headed snake aloso a cheat.

  19. raaaz says

    hi uddipan it seems you got a lot of knowledge regarding religion and culture the way you have referenced Veda, Mahabharata , Ramayana, Gita and all and the way u hv spelled HINDU (as HEEN DU) great yar how can u do all that ??? have you read all the books u mentioned and along with other religious ones ???(i doubt)…
    “THE PICS ARE FAKE EVERYONE SAYING” but how did u managed to pull all that Brahmin mind , manupulation on the name of god, things off in this work of art of technical intelligence.
    you could have referenced “some selfish people” not the religion that only shows you lack of knowledge Grow up and learn respecting the great philosophy and logic behind any religion not only hinduism but all.
    you dont even know why u got 5 fingers (while hritik roshan got 6 in his right) in a hand or total 20 in ur body why 2 eyes or ears 2 hands 2 legs only one mouth 1 stomach Do you ??

  20. uddipan says

    Hi raaaz!!!???
    Thank for your comment “THE PICS ARE FAKE EVERYONE SAYING”. But I understood your pain about Hinduism (HEENDUISM i wrote from the Arabic word which was imposed on us, our rigio-belief SARI SARNA for the justice, equality, liberty and fraternity) which has been missguiding us for a long time. Do you know, the brahmins refused to identify themselves as a hindu when Aorangjeb put “JIJIA KAR” the pilgrims taxes. Why?
    raaaz!It is painful to us that you are the self-oblivious! The genetic science, carbon-dating, anthropology, history, phylosophy and the archeological artifacts having been gradually teardowning the brahmanical blaffing for a long time. Don’t worry friend, all of the inhuman holistic blaffing soon be proved as fake like this 5 headed snake.

  21. Aakash soni says

    where u see this snake first .it is cobra and you so send this image on facebook to all my friends

  22. Vicky says

    I m a WEB Designer… Most of the time i works on photoshop… & i made a picture of Snake with seven heads…. which looks more real than this picture…

  24. Lalitendu patnaik says

    i think it is not a fake story because this snake was saw again by a person in odisha.

  25. NIYATHI says

    just go through it

  26. Razi says

    Why these types of things happen in India only. Is it out of the world? Why it is not happening in other countries? Always they have a different type of faith. They make Statues with their hands then start worshipping and saying those gods. How funny it is.

  27. anonymous says

    ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!
    they can hear and see what your visually thinking

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    you have to spread the message!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!

  28. Arvind says

    It may be true because it may happen by genetic/ chromosomal disorders during development.

  29. Joseph.Rodricks says

    Thease days there is a systamatic planning to promote Blind belief in the Hindu society and this one is one of such attempt to promote the belief that Many hooded cobras still exist. This is just Fake and created by intelligent photography to attract people to Kukke subramanya, a temple known for so called cobras, Recently persons like Tendulkar and many celeberities had visited this place to get rid of Nagadosha. All superstition and fooling the innocent and ignorant Indians in the name of God.

  30. says

    friends it’s all r fake ,, it’s graphics ,,, any one can live with 5 or more than 2 head with one body… how it’s think …5 types of thinking, 5 type of eating ,5 types of watching then how can it analysis , …. it’s impossible…. but good work by manslaughter

  31. Uddipan says

    Brahmanism is the soul cause of all kinds of these bogus, fake, cheating and bluffing.
    Those who believe in Brahmanism (Heenduism) is an uncivilized.
    Those who believe in Brahmanical literature (Vedas-Gita) is an illiterate.
    Those who believe on Brahmanical words is a fool.
    My dear friends, throw out the Brahmins out of our country to make us free from fake.

  34. Uddipan says

    Astrologers are Brahmins, Panjika makers are Brahmins, Priests in Hindu Temple are Brahmins, Owners of the Debdashi and Red-light Areas are Brahmins, Creator of Caste System was a Brahmin. All the causes make Brahmins as DUSKRITAM(the criminals) and fake. Dear Friends, hate the Fake Community or put them in Manmuseum as a criminal species of homosapience. Otherwise they will propagate so many fake like this 5 headed snake.

  38. Partha says

    This Uddipan . . . BUSTA*D . . . is stigmatizing the entire Brahminical society . . . this fellow is mad. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is a Brahmin . . . Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan – we celebrate Teachers’ Day after him – was a Brahmin . . . so what shall we do with Nehruji or Radhakrishnanji? Just read what radical this the headless scoundral has written on September 15, 2011 at 2:52 pm. He even said things which are highly sensitive to religious sentiment of the country. Sacrilage — read what he wrote against the Holy Bok of the Hindus – Gita.
    Read what the idiot wrote on September 21, 2011 at 1:09 pm. The owners of all the brothels are Brahmins ! ! ! How dare he say this.

    On November 25, 2010 at 4:31 pm post he aksed people to hate Brahmins. He again returned back on December 3, 2010 at 12:24 pm and again promoted words of hatred. Again on September 15, 2011 at 2:52 pm he returned back to promote words of hatred.
    By promoting words of hatred among Indian citizens, he has violated Constitutional codes.

    To raaaz’s comments on March 24, 2011 at 3:17 am, the arguments he forwarded, on the same day, are faulty. I never knew that the Brahmins are “teardowning” so many things. Scoundral.
    From his December 3, 2010 at 12:24 pm it seems that the fellow comes from West Bengal. The picture that is published in this website and the picture published in the Bengali news paper are different. The Bengali newspaper published the picture taken from the Suisa Village in Purulia.
    If he is a Bengali, let me remind him that Ramakrishna Paramhansadev, whom Bengal respects as a devine seer, is a Brahmin.
    Rabindranath Tagore, who is the first to win the Noble Prize from India and Asia, is a Brahmin. As he tried to promote hatred, shall Indians start hating them. Moreover, the National Anthem of India is written by Tagore, a Brahmin. So what shall we do with the National Anthem, which we sing with deep patriotism for our country?

    What that Idiot, a brainless uncivilised brute, trying to say? After Viraj’s May 12, 2012 at 9:43 am posting, that headless bugger is silent. I thank Viraj for making that bugger silent, and I apologise for the strong means Viraj had to take. As the dog, so is the rod.

    That swine needs legal prosecution. He will be silent for ever.

    What about human babies with two heads is that also myth or computer graphics. If five headed is not true then my such things which we have believed so far are also not true.and by the way why that sname was not couht by some one from Kadri forst dept ar police at least to show it to others. where is the snake now, simply disappeared or what…..

  42. gowtham says
